Alumni Giving

Since 1966, Urban has pioneered an inspiring educational model that fosters deep and lifelong learning, exceptional teaching, and a strong culture enhanced by diverse backgrounds and ideas. Your investment in Urban ensures that we have the resources to attract and retain outstanding teachers, offer a generous financial aid program to over a third of our families, and support a program that enriches the Urban experience for all students, every day.

Your contribution enables us to deliver the Urban education we all believe in. Join us in Powering Possibilities by giving to this year’s Annual Fund.

Prefer to make a pledge? Please go here (note: all pledges are due by June 11, 2021).


Alumni Leadership Circle
Annual contributions of $1,000 or more through any of the school’s funds, including Urban’s Annual Fund, Class Endowment Funds, Annual Fundraiser for Financial Aid, etc. establish and sustain membership in this special group.

The Alumni Leadership Circle also includes members of the True Blue Society (20+ years consecutive giving) and Urban Legacy Society.

Urban’s True Blue Society recognizes and honors those individuals who have shown exceptional loyalty to Urban through longtime and current support of the school.

The Urban Legacy Society honors those who have included Urban in their estate plans. Planned gifts and bequests provide support that endures for future generations of students and ensures the continued excellence of an Urban education. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Urban Legacy Society, please contact Anna Lee, Director of Development, at or 415-593-9542.

Alumni support has been instrumental in Urban’s success. Your participation, at all levels, makes a difference!
