Help us GO further.

Only with your support can we make West Contra Costa a place where every child from every community develops not just the knowledge needed to succeed, but also the creativity and habits of mind and heart needed to solve new problems in new ways.

So long as our highest-need students remain behind, so long as parents struggle to support their children’s success, so long as educators lack development and support, we must be relentless in doing more — and doing better. And with our twenty-first century world evolving with each passing minute, we don’t have a moment to lose.

Your donation brings us one step closer.

#FreshStart Backpack Drive

Join the #FreshStart Backpack Drive to support West Contra Costa students!

To help West Contra Costa youth start the new school year off right, we're partnering with community organizations to give away 1,000 new backpacks stuffed with brand-new school supplies.

I want to help give away 1,000 backpacks!

Sponsor the Family Leaders Program

Support an entire cohort of parents as they step into their power as changemakers with a gift of $10,000 or more.

By becoming a sponsor, you are:

  • Supporting the personal power and agency of families, empowering them with knowledge and skills to navigate our system and ensure their children are on a track to success in college and career.
  • Fundamentally shifting WCC power dynamics — supporting Family Leaders to lead change and demand seats at decision-making tables they have long been excluded from.

From training sessions, to board actions, to childcare to ensure all can join, to hard-earned stipends, your sponsorship will make it all happen. Visit our Family Leadership page to learn more about the program and reach out to our Director of Development, Alex Cassanova, with any questions about sponsorship (recognition opportunities, etc.).

Families are breaking down barriers and winning real change — your support will fuel their advocacy.

Become a Champion for WCC kids, give monthly

GO Champions are a passionate and determined group of monthly givers on a mission to ensure every child in California receives the quality education they deserve. By joining at a level that is meaningful to you, we will show that we are unstoppable when we work together.

By joining GO Champions, you will:

  • Join the ranks of like-minded donors who care about public education and are working to make things better for their children, families, and the community.
  • Be invited to events, exclusive gatherings, and get the inside track on goings on in local education.
  • Receive regular updates and spotlights on all the good work being carried out by parents, educators, and leaders. The work is hard, but there’s also much to celebrate — we hope these updates brighten your day.

Achieving systems change is a marathon — by giving monthly, you’ll power our work in the long run.


Celebrate a student, teacher, principal, or someone else in your life with a gift to GO

We have all been influenced by education. Maybe you can point to that one teacher who inspired your journey. Or you remember being supported by a guidance counselor who helped set you on a path to be the first in your family to graduate.

Public education is at its best when schools prize knowledge, creativity, and habits of mind and heart to solve new problems in new ways. At GO, we are working to ensure our education system is supporting students, families, and educators to reach their full potential.

When you give a gift of $50 or more celebrating someone in your life, we will send you a card that you can share with that special person.
