HeadsUp is the San Rafael Public Education Foundation.
Our Mission is to bring critical enrichment and support programs to our schools, providing equitable opportunities for our students while building community district wide. 






Who We Are

HeadsUp is made up of parents, school administrators, business people, and active members of the community who, since 1982, have raised millions of dollars to supplement our schools’ budgets. We currently contribute to helping make vital district-wide enrichment programs available to every child in our eleven schools. Though the state economy is improving after years of devastating budget cuts, like most California districts, San Rafael City Schools cannot provide the level of enrichment and corollary support services that the best prepared 21st-century students require. HeadsUp is committed to raising the additional funds necessary to ensure the quality education our 7,000 San Rafael students deserve.
