Family Giving Tree

The San Francisco Bay Area:
On the surface is Silicon Valley’s wealth and opportunity glows but in reality, it has one of the highest poverty rates in the nation affecting 608,000 households. Family Giving Tree helps families who live in this deep shadow of success clear financial hurdles through our Back-to-School and Holiday Wish Drives.

By partnering with hundreds of agencies, we aim to support students every school year and children, adults, and seniors during the Holiday Season.

Back to School Drive

Level the educational playing field for Bay Area students whose families face financial hardship through gifts of backpacks and essential, grade-appropriate school supplies.

Holiday Wish Drive

Give joy by providing the exact Holiday wish of a child, adult, or senior in need. It may not seem like much, but for someone who may not otherwise receive a gift, it’s everything.

The Communities We Serve

We partner with over 250 agencies each Drive to ensure we can serve as many communities that might otherwise feel overlooked here in the Bay Area.

Spreading Hope and Joy in the San Francisco Bay Area

"This year my family and I have overcome separation and have achieved family reunification. I got my kids back! I graduated and I got stable housing. The gifts mean a lot so that the kiddos have a few presents for this Holiday. The gifts are especially important this holiday season because I am getting back on my feet and don't have any funds to buy them gifts, on top of paying rent and utilities."
- Holiday Wish Drive Recipient
"One student was not coming to school because their father couldn't buy him a backpack, school supplies, and uniforms... Once we provided the resources to this student, he has been attending our school daily."
