Sponsorship Opportunities

Each spring, 826 Valencia hosts a fundraising extravaganza featuring talented guests, good food, and a special opportunity to showcase the creativity of our young student writers. The event supports our work providing free services to San Francisco’s under-served student population, and it’s all made possible by the generosity of our kind sponsors.
