Support Us


ABADÁ-Capoeira San Francisco (ACSF) needs you. This is our 26th year in San Francisco’s Mission District, and our continued presence here is perhaps more important than ever.

ACSF serves as a much-needed haven where people from diverse backgrounds come together to learn, find inspiration, experience art and tradition, and express themselves creatively. Our work helps maintain diversity in the neighborhood and infuses the rapidly changing community with values of respect, freedom, integrity, and compassionate leadership. We emphasize hard work, perseverance, and collaboration as well as empathy, trust, and creativity.
At ACSF we are deeply committed to inclusion, inspiration, and connecting people through the art of capoeira. Respect for differences is inherent in the art of capoeira, as is developing the ability to resolve conflict with integrity and dignity. In a world where resonate leadership is critical, we are proud to be teaching children and teens skills, such as confidence, conscious risk-taking, goal-setting, teamwork, and problem-solving, that can lead to a lifetime of good health and civic engagement.

We know that there are numerous organizations and causes that are in dire need of support. We hope that you will make ACSF one of those you choose to help. By making a donation to ACSF you are making a direct and positive impact on the lives of thousands of youth and adults right here in our community.
Your support helps ensure that we are here for future generations, and so that we remain an important foundation for San Francisco's Mission District and beyond.
