Season of Celebration

Think back to your favorite holiday celebration. What did it include? Friends? Family? Food? Gifts? For many, the holidays look just like this. But for others: too many, the holidays are a reminder that theirs is dimmed: unable to afford gifts for loved ones or know that they won’t receive one. Left out of the reverie.

This year make it a part of your celebration to provide gifts for those who would otherwise go without. Join Family Giving Tree to provide 80,000 gifts across the twelve counties of the Bay Area. Working with over 400 social service agencies, with FGT your gifts are able to brighten the holidays for so many children, individuals, and seniors in need.

Celebrate the season. Deliver joy.

Being a part of their Support Network

School is back in session and thanks to you, over 41,000 Bay Area students in need walked into the classroom prepared with the essential school supplies they need to have a successful school year. 

A single backpack doesn’t seem like a big difference but it makes a huge impact for all. Without the worry of interrupting a lesson to ask for paper and a pencil, students are free to learn. And without the extra costs of school supplies, parents and teachers alike are able to pay rent, buy groceries, and pay for transportation.

Thank you for making a difference in their lives. A backpack does more than just help a student learn, it helps their whole network support them better!

Be a Leader and Ignite Imaginations!

School is out for summer but the Back-to-School Drive is just beginning. In an effort to equip 41,000 Bay Area students from low-income families with the tools needed to succeed in the classroom, we need your help!  Consider running a Drive during our 2019 Back-to-School program to help so many students in need.

Drive Leaders are Family Giving Tree’s grassroots leaders in the community. Whether you’re at a private organization, a public company, or a group of friends, you can still make an impact in this easy way. These individuals go above and beyond to solicit and collect physical backpacks and monetary donations on our behalf. Then they bring everything to FGT’s Back-to-School Warehouse for our wonderful volunteers and staff to process and distribute to our partner schools across the Bay Area. It’s a great way to get the whole team involved in giving back to the local community.

Simply sign up on our website, register your group, request the number of backpack tags; adding a virtual giving option, if you like; and you are set. We will mail the materials to you or download them on our resources page. Together we can ignite the imaginations of so many Bay Area students!
