Good Intentions, Great Results!

On September 23, Grace Cathedral hosted  Yoga for Change, to benefit The Community Preschool. Thank you to our community of socially-minded supporters for sharing a morning of yoga, led by our special guest instructors and musicians. With your help, we raised $36,000 to support this vital and transformative early childhood education. Namaste.

The Community Preschool depends on you to serve the youngest members of our Grace Cathedral community.

Proceeds support student financial aid, teacher training seminars, meals and activities, revitalizing indoor and outdoor classrooms and our dream of opening a parent resource center.

The Community Preschool

The Community Preschool's intentional socio-economic diversity brings together children and families that represent a multitude of identities in the goal of validating and respecting all of the intersectionalities present within this special community of San Francisco. It is an extraordinary early childhood program that prepares children not just for kindergarten success, but for life itself.
