Our students care about making the world a better place.
At Stratford School, community service is a cornerstone of citizenship. Each year, our student-run Stratford Cares program gives back to the communities in which Stratford students live and learn. In 2016, Stratford raised nearly $180,000 over the school year with major contributions going to:
- Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (more than $60K)
- American Heart Association (more than $62K)
- American Cancer Society ($15K)
- St. Jude Children’s Hospital ($15K).
Other contributions include:
- Food donations to Bay Area food banks including Second Harvest, San Francisco, Contra Costa County, and Alameda County services
- In-kind donations of coats, clothing, toys, and other goods and volunteer time for organizations such as Coats for Kids,
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society recently recognized the generosity of students and families at Stratford’s Fremont Curtis campus when it ranked #1 locally and 7th in the nation among schools participating in the LLS annual giving program.
