Cake4Kids partners with Hotel Avante Hotel to help local foster care and at-risk youth have a happy birthday. Hotel Avante graciously donate their executive business meeting rooms for Cake4Kids monthly volunteer orientations, business meetings, classes and events.


Cake4Kids was founded in September, 2010 in Sunnyvale, CA by Libby Gruender to provide free birthday cakes to at risk youth in the San Francisco Bay Area. Cake4Kids mission is to serve San Francisco Bay Area agencies that cater to disadvantaged children and youth and to provide a service that brings smiles and hope to children who wouldn't otherwise have a birthday. As Cake4Kids volunteer base grows, our mission is expanding and we continue to add new agencies.

If you're like most people, it hasn't. At Cake4Kids, we provide free birthday cakes for San Francisco Bay Area children who would not otherwise have a birthday cake.

Cake4Kids was founded in September, 2010 to help foster kids and at-risk youth feel special at least one day a year, to raise their self-esteem, and to increase their chance of success in school and life knowing that people care for them. The primary method of mission delivery is by providing free birthday cakes to foster care and at-risk youth who wouldn’t otherwise have a birthday celebration.

Cake4Kids is powered by an amazing group of volunteers who bake cakes in their homes; delivering the magnificent birthday cakes to youth signed up with our organization. Youth range in age from 1 year to 18 years but each one is delighted to be recognized and receive a special cake baked just for them. The delight and joy in their faces when they receive their large pink or white box is so rewarding.

Basic life needs like blue jeans, backpacks, pajamas and food are essentials that every child needs and hopefully gets with the help and support of wonderful existing organizations around the Bay Area. Cake4Kids wants to bring a smile to a child’s face. We hear over and over from our service providers how the youth we are helping would not have a birthday or a birthday cake if it were not for the love and generosity of Cake4Kids volunteers. Smiles bring hope and hope breeds success. Help Cake4Kids help at risk youth. Donate online today or email for more information if you would like to become a volunteer.

We started Cake4Kids on September 1, 2010 and we are growing daily. If you would like to be added to our list of recipients, please send an email to describing your organization or your current needs.
