2018 Making Hope Happen Gala Highlights 


Thank you all who joined us to celebrate our 4th annual gala on May 3rd, 2018!





"My involvement with the Making Hope Happen Foundation has allowed me to see firsthand the heart local philanthropists have for our kids."

Ginger Ontiveros, Executive Director, Community Engagement, San Bernardino City Unified School District

"“A high quality, continuous education from infant to high school graduate (K-12) is critical for the success of the individual student, their families and our country. Education has always been the portal for the advancement of the student, family and our society. Under the leadership of the San Bernardino City, County School Districts and California State University, the community is notably successful in view of significant obstacles of low income, crime, transient students and other issues which low-income areas encounter. We are so pleased to be a part of the Making Hope Happen Foundation and their efforts in developing pathways for students to be successful at every age.""

Jim & Judy Watson, Watson & Associates

"We are very excited to be part of this great cause. We value our partnership with the SBCUSD and we’re always looking forward to giving back to the community, which is one of Durham School Service’s core values."

Sam Eram, Regional Manager - Southern California, Durham School Services

"We at AALRR are so proud to be a partner in education with the Making Hope Happen Foundation and the San Bernardino City Unified School District. The educators in our local communities are shaping and nurturing the minds of our future leaders and we are pleased to play a supporting role in that wonderful effort"

Mark W. Thompson, Partner, Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Rudd & Romo

"With its focus on the youth of our community and an enduring commitment to prepare them for success, both in education and life, the Making Hope Happen Foundation is changing lives and ensuring a brighter future for the entire region. Cal State San Bernardino is proud to acknowledge and support such caring and visionary leadership that furthers the mission of the San Bernardino City Unified School District."
