Hello Dear Friends and Family,
I'll bet you already know how important it is to me that our community has access to healthcare, and how much I value living in city where we care about diversity, and freedom of expression of all kinds.
Why am I passionate about fundraising for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation (SFAF) this year?
*We provide FREE and EXPERT services: HIV, Sexual Health, Mental Health, Substance Abuse Programs, Housing and Benefist Assistance Services.
*1/3 of our budget depends on AIDS/LifeCycle fundraising. In 2017 ALC cyclists, volunteers and donors raised $15.3 million! ~70% of funds raised go directly to services - in the world of fundraising, we are best-in-class.
*The number Homeless and severely UNDERSUPPORTED people in our city has skyrocketed - SFAF work goes beyond HIV work. We provide a safe place, compassionate and passionate counselors for so many, and support groups and programs that are unique and tailored to our SF community - Apoyo Latino, TransLife, Black Brothers Esteem, Harm Reduction Center/Stonewall substance abuse programs......Want to learn more?...I LOVE talking about the incredible work we do, so let's make a coffee date and chat.
Here's how your donation helps:

$500 Helps provide medical benefits counseling to 15 clients
$250 Helps provide ten rapid HIV antibody tests at one of our testing sites
