NEW SchoolForce Brand LOGO

We are proud to announce the launch of the new SchoolForce logo as part of the ongoing evolution of our organization and its support of the students of the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District. SchoolForce began as a grass roots effort in 2001 to save music programs that were being eliminated from our schools. Over the past 15+ years, SchoolForce has grown to become an essential component of educational funding in our district. SchoolForce consistently raises the funds to keep staff and programs in our schools that make a well-rounded education possible for our students. Our new brand logo represents SchoolForce as it today and into the future, emphasizing some of the many programs that remain in our schools thanks to donations to SchoolForce – like science and music teachers, reading specialists, library technicians, sports programs and more.

Our new tagline “Powering Exceptional Education” echoes SchoolForce’s long time mission to “raise money for teachers and programs to ensure an exceptional education for the children of the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District.” The gears showcase how the efforts and contributions of our community work in sync to provide truly exceptional education when federal state and local funding alone cannot. It is by working together that we are able to support the students of the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District. Learn more about SchoolForce here.
