Important Information:

The Spring Gala is the CCCC's largest annual fundraiser. 100% of the proceeds go directly back to the Center, funding much-needed child care and social services. We are happy to announce that a generous donor will be matching all the proceeds raised. Any donation amount will help us tremendously.

CCCC's Mission:

CCCC was founded in 1972, and is one of San Francisco's oldest existing non-profit Chinese Bilingual/Bicultural child care centers. CCCC is dedicated to providing quality child care and an array of other social services to meet the needs of new immigrant families.
