About Us


The primary focus of the Rogers Family Foundation is to support dramatic improvement in educational outcomes for the students of Oakland, California.

While the majority of our work is focused on improving Oakland public schools through our Oakland Education Strategy, the foundation also supports a variety of other grantees, most notably the University of California - Berkeley and the University of California - San Francisco. In addition, the foundation invests occasionally in local capital projects.

The Rogers Family Foundation is a private family foundation that was established by T. Gary and Kathleen Rogers in 2003.
