Our Theory of Change
In the spring of 2022, we worked with staff, board, Teaching & Learning Advisors & Community Advisors to build out this Theory of Change. It will focus and guide our work over the next 3-5 years.
The Berkeley Public Schools Fund (then Berkeley Public Education Foundation) was established in 1983, when Proposition 13 tax restructuring began impacting public schools. A group of Berkeley parents and community leaders, concerned about the diminishing resources for public schools, created the Berkeley Public Schools Fund.
Starting with grants, followed by volunteers, the Berkeley Public Schools Fund has been a reliable resource for educators and for the broader community interested in supporting public education, since its founding.
