We’re sharing amazing news from Yoga for Change on September 18. Whether you were showing us your best downward dog at home or in the cathedral, your generosity to The Community Preschool enabled us to raise over $55,000 for early childhood education. Thank you for helping to make our first hybrid fundraiser a success.
Namaste to instructors Yvonne Kingsley and Darren Main, and musician Nat Kendall.
Collectively, our gifts make a big impact for our littlest learners.

About The Community Preschool
The Community Preschool seeks the richness of a diverse classroom by intentionally enrolling families from the varied socioeconomic backgrounds, ethnicities, religious traditions, gender identities, cultures and abilities represented in the San Francisco Bay Area. We enable students to appreciate different perspectives at an early age and to equip them to contribute to a diverse society. Our goal is to influence the lives of young people and their families and communities in a meaningful and substantive way and to shape how they think, how they view the world and how they engage in it.
