We wouldn’t be where we are today without the extraordinary guidance we’ve received from First Republic.

The BASIC Fund was created with one vision in mind: matching low-income San Francisco Bay Area families with viable education alternatives through their scholarship program. Overseeing a nonprofit can present challenges, especially for an organization that has awarded over 25,000 scholarships since their inception in 1998. First Republic, which has partnered with the BASIC Fund from the beginning, understands these challenges. First Republic’s guidance and services have helped the BASIC Fund maintain focus on their core mission to open the door to education equality and create an impact that will change lives forever.
