2017 Auction Donations Accepted

Please join us in continuing a 40+ year tradition of support for the students of the Rosa Parks Japanese Bilingual Bicultural Program (RPJBBP) of the San Francisco Unified School District, located in the Western Addition.

The program, which includes native Japanese-speaking sensei (instructors), helps the 250 children of the Rosa Parks JBBP learn to speak, write, read and understand Japanese. JBBP students also celebrate culture and traditions in a way that fosters a lifelong love of learning, prepares them for college, and opens their minds to a global view. JBBP serves a diverse population of students from the neighborhood and throughout the city and is one of the SFUSD’s great success stories.

Unflagging support from parents, families, community organizations and businesses contribute to the development and success of the RPJBBP.

We are holding our 2017 JBBP Annual Celebration and Fundraiser on Saturday, March 11,
2017, at St. Mary’s Cathedral, and are seeking:

  1. donations of goods and/or services for our silent and live auctions
  2. cash donations
  3. purchase of an ad in our program brochure

We would appreciate your tax-deductible donation. Our federal Tax ID Number is 03-

If you would like to purchase an ad, please see the attached pages for ad prices.

We look forward to a favorable reply by Friday, February 11, 2017. With your help, we can continue to help the children of the RPJBBP receive a strong Japanese language and culture program in addition to their regular elementary school education. To donate or for more information, please contact Gayle Kojimoto-Hume at For more information about our program, visit
