2017 Scholarship Fundraising Campaign Kick Off!

We are kicking off this campaign to give donors like yourselves the opportunity to help the Bay Area Gardeners Scholarship Foundation (BAGSF). Our mission to provide scholarships to deserving low-income students in the pursuit of fulfilling their higher educational goals and in most cases the first in their family to further their studies beyond high school.

BAGSF celebrates its 11th Anniversary this year. To date we have awarded a total of 202 scholarships to deserving students. We have begun our 2017 fundraising campaign to ensure each student selected will receive a scholarship for $2,000. In 2016, the Board decided to provide Chromebooks to all the recipients in addition to the scholarship moving forward.

You have an opportunity to make a huge difference in the life of a student. These students have studied hard to get where they are today and are now ready to go to the next level of pursuing a college degree in a special area of interest that they feel passionate about.

BAGSF motto is Motivate, Encourage, and Invest in our future leaders!




We are celebrating our 10th anniversary this year, 2016. Thank you to the generous donations and for the sponsorship we have been able to award 202 students in which 95% of our students have graduated from college from various majors; such as teachers, engineers, accountants and many more. Thank you for all your help and support that has made an impact and change to many students and their families.

Latino Community Foundation grants $9000 to Bay Area Gardeners Scholarship Foundation

Thank you for joining us for our 11th Annual Gala, Inspiring Philanthropy con Sabor Latino. What an incredible and unforgettable evening!

Thanks to you we had a record number of guests, with nearly 600 people, and raised $632,000 – the largest sum in the history of the gala. Above all else, I was so inspired and moved by the love, joy, and enthusiasm expressed and shared throughout the night. The entire evening was bursting with energy and excitement about the work of the Latino Community Foundation (LCF), our grantees, and our partners.

Our guest of honor, Darren Walker, and our 2016 awardees, Maricela Gutierrez and Catalino Tapia, embodied the heart and soul of LCF and reflected the critical role each of one of us can play to ensure a more equitable future for Latinos in California. I am so grateful for their leadership and unwavering commitment!
