2014 Celebration of Service
Friday, May 9th from 6:00-9:00 p.m.

Join us in honoring the achievements of this year's Bay Area Fellows. Meet and congratulate each Fellow as they present their projects. Cheer as they become Schweitzer Fellows for Life, and give a hearty welcome to our 2014-15 Fellows.

This inspiring event will be held at the historic Berkeley City Club. The Club is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Designed by the legendary Julia Morgan, the Club was opened in 1930. It's steps away from the Berkeley campus, two blocks from Telegraph Avenue, five blocks from downtown Berkeley and the BART station. Watch your email for an invitation with more details.
On February 8th, our 2013-14 Fellows joined student dentists, residents, faculty and staff at the UCSF School of Dentistry's annual "Give Kids a Smile Day" which provided free dental screenings for children aged 4-17. While the UCSF team offered oral hygiene care including dental sealants, fluoride treatment, and gift bags of toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss, our Fellows hosted a health fair for parents and children as they left the clinic.GKAS T Shirts

Among the attractions the fair provided were nutritious snacks, including recipes and general nutrition information, blood pressure readings, displays of human organs (intestines, hearts and lungs) to touch and ask questions about, a Wheel of Fortune health game with prizes for all and a very popular stretching and Zoomba mini-class.

Every year, our Fellows create a one-day community based group outreach GKAS Dayproject, which combines measurable service with the opportunity to work side-by-side as a team. For the past two years they have partnered with Give Kids a Smile Day, a national program launched by the American Dental Association in 2003 that provides individual services to underserved children throughout the United States.


After many months of hard work on our behalf by a dedicated and tireless pro bono legal team at DLA Piper (Palo Alto), the IRS has granted the San Francisco Bay Area Schweitzer Fellowship its own 501(c) (3) status as a non-profit, tax exempt organization. This means that all funds donated to our program now stay here in the Bay Area and because of lowered overhead, more of your generous contributions can be used to directly support our Fellows. It also means that all contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
