Interested in promoting your company as an organization that does good in San Francisco?

Sponsors leverage their virtual presence to build valuable connections in San Francisco, expose their brands to a captive audience of influential community partners and leaders, and shine as community leaders who value education as a means of equity for low-income, Latinx, Black, and immigrant families.

"My parents brought us here so I could go to college one day. Being the first in my family to go college is a really big thing."

How to Get Involved

Every year, Food for Thought is made possible by the support of amazing community partners. Ensure that more diners create a greater impact on the lives of our students this year by becoming a supporter of Food for Thought 2020.

For the entire month of October, we’re hosting our signature fundraiser, Food for Thought, to send more young San Franciscans to college! It’s a city-wide fundraiser in partnership with community-minded businesses centered around food.

This year, we’ve come together to support local food businesses while raising funds for Mission Graduates’ work in expanding access to higher education for low-income, children, youth, and families! When you feed your body, you feed their minds.

Donor Gifts

Restaurant partners have pledged to donate a percentage of their proceeds or $1 per order to directly support Mission Graduates. You can maximize your impact through donations to Mission Graduates!

Some randomly-selected supporters will receive donor gifts, like a trip for two to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and a week's stay at Casa de las Estrellas!

In-Kind Donations

Support comes in many forms! If you’re unable to dine-in in San Francisco or would just prefer to donate an item or experience to Mission Graduates instead, we'd still love your support. 

Restaurant Partners

This year, restaurants all over San Francisco have pledged to donate a portion of the proceeds to make college a reality for San Francisco youth. Mission Graduates supporters dine out en masse at participating restaurants, showing their support for businesses doing good in San Francisco.
