Students Rock Foundation is a charitable corporation based in the Northern California SF Bay Area. We provide scholarships based on financial need for students wishing to participate in performing arts enrichment programs not officially associated with a school district. Students Rock Foundation enables students to explore, learn, and achieve, in a variety of programs such as music, choral, theatre or dance and more.

Students Rock Foundation was founded by a group of parents whose families' lives were enriched by their participation in music, dance, theatre and other performing arts classes in the SF Bay Area. Since participation in these activities can be expensive and out of the reach of many families, we realized how important it would be to provide opportunities for those without the monetary means to enroll in performing arts enrichment classes. By bringing social and economic diversity to these programs, all participating students and families are enriched.

Thanks to all of you who helped make the November 13, 2016 Students Rock Benefit IV such a big success. A special shout out to the Freight and Salvage Coffeehouse (Bob, Peter, Leah, Alice & Sam) and the musicians - Nat Keefe & Yosef Tucker (with additional Hot Buttered Rum bandmates Bryan Horne & Zebulon Bowles) , Kevin Beadles and his band (Steven Gregory, Bruce Linde and Chuck Nelson), and E'clair De Lune (Dennis Fortin, Dave Fischer, James Pickrel, Cote Reese & Danny Bittker) who gave of their time, energy and patience to bring us all together and without whom this event would never have happened. A big thank you to the many generous sponsors who donated items for our silent auction that allows us to doing what we like to do best: award scholarships. Some of our sponsors included Back Roads productions, Starving Musicians, Comal and many more.
