Mother's Day Scholarships

Sponsor a Scholarship in Her Name

This Mother's Day, we are grateful for our Moms and all of the mothers and mother figures in our lives. We want to honor their gifts to us by sponsoring Impact scholarships in their names. Your contribution allows a low-income Mom to learn self-defense, empowerment and personal safety while honoring your Mom in a unique and powerful way.

Honor a woman who shaped you into who you are today by giving the gift of safety in her name.

$495 sponsors a full scholarship for a 20+ hour Basics class

$250 provides a 50% scholarship for a Basics student

$100 provides a full scholarship for Intro to Padded Assailant

Contributions to our scholarship fund in any amount are gratefully accepted.


100% of your contribution goes to our scholarship fund. Impact Bay Area is a 501c3 non-profit, so your contribution is fully tax-deductible.

You can also mail a check to Impact Bay Area, PO Box 23831, Oakland, CA 94623. Make sure to note "Mother's Day scholarship" in the memo and include your honoree's name (and story if you wish to share it with us).
