Donation Information

The Golden Gate STEM Fair is a nonprofit organization that relies on donations to operate, both financial and in human time. We greatly appreciate being a part of a community that fosters an inquisitive spirit and work to encourage scientific research passion in students.

We are currently awaiting approval from the IRS to obtain official 501(c)3 tax status, which we expect by the beginning of 2018. In the meantime we are soliciting donations with our fiscal partner, the West Contra Costa Public Education Fund.

GGSF Needs your help!

To hold the 2018 Science Fair and send our top placing students to compete at the International Science and Engineering Fair, we need to raise $60,000. We are thrilled to have the generous support from StudioInfinity in the form of a $30,000 challenge grant! To receive this gift, we have to match this amount. Your contribution means more than ever now, since every dollar you contribute will doubled by the generous grant from Studio Infinity. Please go to our Donation Page to support our bright young scientists today. (S) is a virtual space for exploring the ideas underlying the structures we see around us.


Thank you to the following major donors and for the generosity from individuals from our community!
