Providing community-based, financial support for Mission High School and its staff and students.

Fakhrah Teaching

All of us in the community can help make the dream of a great education for all students a reality.

Mission High Foundation is an independent non-profit that provides much needed resources for San Francisco’s historic Mission High School both through fundraising and through building bridges with the greater community.

We partner with individuals, businesses, and other donors to support Mission High’s uniquely successful programs, which take place both inside and outside the traditional classroom.

Everything we do, in some way, goes directly toward helping make sure every student graduates fully prepared for college or for success in the next stage of their lives.

The foundation is 100% volunteer-run, and 100% of every dollar raised goes to direct program spending. All administrative and overhead costs of the Foundation are funded by members of the Board.
