We need 1,100 kindergarten-5th grade high quality character backpacks along with 1,400 high quality backpacks for grades 6th-12th.

It’s that time of year again and we are excited to announce the 2024 San Francisco Backpack Project! Launched at the firm in 1999, the Backpack Project unites the efforts of lawyers, staff and friends of the firm to donate funds, collect supplies, and put together backpacks for delivery to shelters, organizations and school.

This year the Ropes & Gray San Francisco Office is proud to continue our support of Hamilton Families.

Today A Reader, Tomorrow A Leader

Help us provide books to under-resourced communities where book ownership is either low or just doesn't exist. We all know that literacy attainment is directly tied to academic achievement and ultimately, kids' futures.

45 million Americans are functionally illiterate and 50% of adults cannot read a book above an 8th grade level. Help us change these shocking statistics by boosting literacy skills among children living in economically disadvantaged circumstances who do not have the same access to books as their more affluent peers.

Thank you for helping kids in need learn and thrive in school and in life!

2024 Winter Coat Drive
86%
0 days left

Help us keep kids warm this winter and performing at their best with awesome coats that last and are stylish to help boost their self-confidence!

At Sydney Paige, we have been flooded with requests from educators and non-profit partners for thousands of winter coats that are high-quality and water resistant ~ most notably for newcomers coming into the Bay Area and New York.

With self-worth and pure love as our driving factors, we source coats that have a detachable hood and are fleece-lined (cozy!), machine washable and water-repellent - which means when it rains or snows, beads of waters will form and fall right off of the jacket! Buying in bulk allows us to get these coats for just $25-$28 vs. a retail price tag of $75-$100.

Thank you for your help to make the otherwise impossible POSSIBLE for the kids we are so fortunate to serve. We can't do it without you!

Education is the key to empowering individuals and communities. By providing educational gifts, you're investing in a child's knowledge skills, and abilities, enabling them to make a positive impact on society in the future by:

  • BOOSTING SELF-CONFIDENCE

  • CLOSING THE OPPORTUNITY GAP
  • PROMOTING LIFELONG LEARNING
  • SUPPORTING PERSONAL GROWTH
  • BUILDING STRONGER COMMUNITIES

Education-related gifts nurture a generation of informed, curious, and empowered individuals who can shape a better world for us all.

A little goes a LONG way! Help by engaging friends, family, and coworkers to make smaller donations that up to a significant impact. Thank you for participating to help students' minds flourish and become the leaders and change makers they were meant to be!

One of the top reasons students drop out of school is lack of tools to do their work. Every child should have access to the tools and confidence needed to learn and thrive in school regardless of their zip code. 


Hidden Valley Elementary School in Martinez, is one of 29 elementary schools in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District that needs our help. 


Please consider donating a high quality backpack filled with school supplies. You'll be making an investment in the future of these children, breaking down barriers to educational success!

Help our Peres K-8 Scholars Get Ready to Learn this New School Year!

0 days left

This fall Peres K-8 School will welcome 570 scholars on campus. Every year, our students come through our gates ready and excited to learn new things. Every year we try to help our students overcome challenges in their day-to-day life. We provide opportunities for our students to be academically ready and emotionally sound to grow into their fullest potential. With this promise comes the great challenge of supporting our school families.  As a Title 1  school, 100% of our students get free and reduced lunch daily. Most of our families live in an economically challenging situation. 

Our vision would not materialize without community support. Our annual partnership with the Sydney Paige Foundation has allowed us to provide all our kids with backpacks filled with school supplies. Providing these very basic materials goes beyond the hopeful smiles of our students.  It signifies a great start to the school year with students prepared to learn. IT also signifies our families' sense of security that they do not have to choose between a meal or buying school supplies for their children to get them ready for the school year.

Each backpack is that is donated sets our students up to be successful everyday. We appreciate all your support in making our dream a reality. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Peres K-8 Family
