Teach with Africa’s
13th Annual Gala
‘The Magic of Change’

This event has been canceled.

Dear Teach with Africa Supporters and Gala Sponsors,

March is a very important month for Teach with Africa.  It is in March that our wonderful educators are here from South Africa co-teaching at Bay Area schools and therefore it is when we always hold our annual Gala fundraiser event.

However, this March is unlike others.  With the growing concern about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we at Teach with Africa, working with Salesforce and out of an abundance of caution, have made the difficult decision to cancel our Thursday, March 26th Gala.

Our Teach with Africa partner programs and schools, more than ever, require our financial assistance.  With the cancellation of our main fundraiser, we would greatly appreciate any donation you might consider in order to help us fund these critical efforts and to transform communities through education initiatives.

In addition, we will be looking at moving auction items online and will keep you posted on that effort.  We have some wonderful auction items and look forward to getting the online bidding going!

We look forward to celebrating with you next March 2021 at our Teach with Africa Gala!

Stay tuned for more info information on our online auction…
