CalSAC's 35 Years Strong Giving Campaign

Together we Unite. Empower. Transform.

Make an exponential difference

Spreading awareness is a great way to help support our cause.

In 1982…everyone was doing the robot, Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” was at the top of the charts, acid wash jeans were all the rage…and a few dedicated individuals were around a kitchen table forming CalSAC, because they believed that we could do better for our children and youth.


Today - 35 years later, we still believe that young people need and deserve more.  That’s why CalSAC is building a more equitable future for California’s children and families where:

Every child in California — regardless of income, race, or zip code — has access to high quality, affordable out-of-school time programs (like before school, afterschool and summer learning).

Every professional in the field has the resources they need and is valued for the important impact they have on the lives of children.  

In 2017, we may wear different clothes and listen to different music, yet CalSAC’s unique spirit continues, where people are at the center of our work and youth are at the heart of our actions.


CalSAC has set the goal to raise $35,000 for our 35 Years Strong Giving Campaign.
  And, thanks to the generosity of the S.D. Bechtel Jr. Foundation and The David and Lucile Packard Foundation, your donation will be matched dollar for dollar up to $35,000!

Will you honor CalSAC’s 35 year legacy and invest in the next 35 years?

About the Organization

CalSAC (California School-Age Consortium)

CalSAC believes that every young person should have access to high-quality, affordable out-of-school time options like before school, afterschool, and summer enrichment programs. Every year, CalSAC trains and empowers thousands of adults who work in California’s out-of-school time programs to strengthen their skills, deepen their impact, and advocate for policies that benefit children and families.

In turn, these individuals shape the lives of tens of thousands of young people, helping them unlock their full potential. Through collaboration and innovation, our network creates ripple effects of opportunity, equity and transformation throughout California, both for professionals and the young people they serve.
