Unrestricted Gifts

Making an unrestricted gift allows us to apply your donation where it will have the most impact. Unrestricted gifts give Mission Dolores Academy the flexibility to offer students new opportunities, strengthen ongoing programs, or meet unexpected financial needs.


Your gift will enable students to attend Mission Dolores Academy. Despite the rising cost of operating in San Francisco, we set the family commitment for tuition at $5,000 per year, per student.  The cost to educate each child is actually nearly $9,000.


In an effort to keep young minds fueled for learning, we provide a daily continental breakfast for all students; daily nutritious snacks that include yogurt, fresh fruit, vegetables, etc.; milk and fruit for all students to eat with a bag brought from home; and sandwich supplies for students who either forget bag lunches or were not provided one from home. Your gift to this program helps meet our students’ nutritional needs.

Curriculum and Classroom Supplies

Help us to improve our curriculum areas of math, science, literacy, history, religion, computer science, entrepreneurship, music, and language arts with books, supplies, programmatic learning modules or enriching field trips.

Operating Expenses

Fund our general operating costs (building maintenance, insurance, back office, administration, electricity, etc.) and have our greatest appreciation.
