This holiday season consider donating to SMART. No amount is too small.
SMART provides highly motivated, financially-disadvantaged students in San Francisco with access to educational opportunities, personal experiences and social support services in order to foster academic excellence and community engagement.
Only 8% of low-income students earn a college degree. SMART closes the achievement gap by providing these students with access to academically rigorous schools, and with intensive social, emotional and academic support from grades 5-12.
