Kentfield Invests in Kids (KIK), the Kentfield Schools Foundation, is a parent-driven, volunteer non-profit organization in the Greenbrae-Kentfield school community. The foundation raises funds, while building community, to help support the high-quality education our children receive in the Kentfield School District.


The Kentfield Schools Foundation provides financial support for Bacich Elementary and Kent Middle, public schools of the Kentfield School District, by raising funds to support and maintain consistently excellent educational opportunities for district students. We strive to ensure that each child may reach his or her potential.


While fundraising and building community, KIK’s Values encompass the following:

  • Inclusivity
  • Respect
  • Transparency
  • Gratitude for our Students, Team, District, and Community
  • Programs for students to reach personal potential
  • Teamwork to meet challenges and to be a steadfast organization for our community
  • Innovation, creativity, and progress



KIK raises funds generously donated by Bacich and Kent families, local businesses and community members to help bridge the gap in the cost to educate each student in Kentfield School District. The over $1 million KIK Annual Contribution represents about 5% of the KSD annual budget. As dollars are raised, KIK disperses funds in four installments throughout the current school year to be used for Bacich and Kent schools.

With these funds, KIK helps to support educational opportunities and offers programs to benefit 100% of students at Bacich and Kent.

Dear KSD Community,

Like many of you, I am so grateful to be a part of the Kentfield School District community. The teachers, staff, administration, school board, parents, KSPTA, and KIK all work together to create a vibrant and excellent school experience for our students.

KIK has been supporting our schools for over 40 years, and we will continue to support the arts and enrichment programs that our schools are known for like Art, Music, PE, Library, STEM, and Drama. These programs are at the heart of our students’ educational experience.  

Thank you to all of the families and businesses who continue to support our schools through their generous contributions to the KIK Foundation.

With gratitude,

Noah Wheeler
