The Doing Good Fund

We created the Doing Good Fund (DGF) to make a difference in the lives of countless people in the Bay Area as well as abroad. Contributions to the fund annually support our E-Sports programs, the Hope Technology School, benevolence, and homegrown community projects as well as relief locally and abroad.

For 2021, our goal is to raise over $75,000 through our Doing Good Fund contribution from now to May 5th. Get inspired by checking out the video below – it’s all about “God and Good”!

Note: Our Doing Good Fund has replaced the weekly needs contribution we used to take up at our midweek services. You can now contribute to the Doing Good Fund anytime you like, all year long.

Your contributions to our Doing Good Fund support these four areas:

Partnering with the Bay Area’s premier private inclusion and technology school to make it possible for typical and special needs students to receive a top-rated education.

When shelter-in-place took effect in March 2020, HTS pivoted swiftly to immediately provide all their students and classes with distance learning options on Zoom. Then in July, HTS met all Santa Clara Public Health and state safety requirements to receive a waiver for reopening live instruction for the fall term. With a fully licensed preschool on site to provide childcare for essential workers, HTS has been able to offer both on-site and distance learning to all their students through the fall, with parents being given a choice as to which method of instruction they prefer for their child.

Hope Technology School

E-Sports

Our volunteer-based inclusive and free sports programs serving thousands of typical children and children with special needs locally and globally.

E-Soccer, Hoops, Dance, and Karate have kept the families they serve engaged online with Facebook Live, Instagram TV, and Zoom classes and drills throughout the pandemic. As well, the Golden State Warriors and E-Hoops are working together on how to better serve special needs families as they plan their 2021 Chase Center re-opening and new 2021 GSW Academy programs.

Helping members in an unexpected short term life crisis by assisting with basic needs like shelter, food or medical assistance.

BACC is committed to helping take care of families in need due to unexpected job loss, health crises, etc. Last year, benevolence from our Doing Good Fund was able to give some relief to many families in need to help them get through the holiday season.

Doing Good Projects

Relief and support for catastrophic events, grassroots “good” projects that benefit the community, and needs abroad.

In the past few years, BACC has helped on several fronts to support the launch of the Tarlac, Philippines Church as well as providing 2-3 months living expenses to the Calapan, Philippines Church to meet needs in the pandemic.

Over the past 5 years, BACC has provided catastrophic fire and hurricane relief  locally and abroad in the form of gift cards, emergency supplies, meals, essential items, and monetary donations to meet immediate needs. And our annual middle school summer backpack drive has donated over 600 backpacks to kids in foster care.

Below are organizations your donations have supported…
