Bay Area Volunteers

Organization Profile

What We Do:

We bring critical enrichment and support programs to our schools throughout San Rafael, providing equitable opportunities for our students while building community district-wide.HeadsUp is made up of parents, school administrators, business people, and active members of the community who, since 1982, have raised millions of dollars to supplement our schoolsâ?? budgets. We currently contribute to helping make vital district-wide enrichment programs available to every child in our twelve schools. Though the state economy is improving after years of devastating budget cuts, like most California districts, San Rafael City Schools cannot provide the level of enrichment and corollary support services that the best prepared 21st century students require. HeadsUp is committed to raising the additional funds necessary to ensure the quality education our 7,000 San Rafael students deserve.

Who We Are:

HeadsUp programs provide essential arts, academic, and enrichment opportunities that enhance each childâ??s educational experience. These activities celebrate the diversity of our San Rafael community and unify and strengthen that community through volunteerism and raising awareness of our studentsâ?? educational needs.Our fundraising events include our annual Carnival that happens in the Fall on San Rafael High's campus, Rockin'Run which is a pledge a lap activity that occurs at each school and some smaller community events.
