Just Curious:

What is your most significant school memory?

Be Honest.

It probably wasn’t the lesson on multiplication tables, or the thick homework packets. Those things are super important, but more likely, the education moment that stayed with you was a field trip, or the a science lab experiment, or maybe a volunteer or community service experience.

Real Talk.

Our public education is awesome, but we can no longer take for granted that field trips, enrichment activities, or even sometimes basic needs¬† are available to all students, all of the time. And these are not ‘extras‘ – these are essential.¬†

That's Why SLED Was Founded.

The San Leandro Education Foundation exists to provide these hands-on, experience oriented essentials. We strive to fund and support programs that impact as many students as possible, with a focus on equity for our diverse San Leandro community.

Make a Difference.

It’s easy to be part of SLED’s mission. You can donate, become a volunteer, serve on our Board of Directors, or attend a SLED event. We believe strong education equals a strong community, and we are all in this together!

SLED has supported local schools with over $1.15 million dollars since 2008. Our programs grow in impact, and our scope adapts to current student needs as we grow. Your support can make a difference to the over 8,800 students on the 13 San Leandro public school sites.
