Each spring, San Francisco Villages celebrates aging at our Transforming Lives and Community Luncheon, where we honor two individuals who exemplify what it means to age with dignity and purpose. The inspiring event draws more than 250 supporters who share a commitment to the Village ideal and want to help build this life-affirming model for social change. Read about our event and past Founders’ Award recipients here.
To learn more about the four levels of event sponsorship available, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many of our members experience hearing loss which inhibits their ability to enjoy programs and participate in discussions. Staff and board members are hopeful that we will raise the funds needed to purchase state-of-the-art assistive listening equipment and have it installed in our Fulton St. meeting space. To inquire about how you can help us purchase this equipment, please email email@example.com
At the close of the year, San Francisco Village reaches out to our community to ask for help to continue empowering older adults to live their fullest lives in the places they call home. This fundraising drive provides direct support to our operating budget. We strive to expand the many ways that we connect our members to the community, programming and expertise they need to remain independent, engaged and resilient as they age. To support us in this effort, please scroll up and make a donation through the form above.
When you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate a portion of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice, in this case, San Francisco Village. The shopping process remains the same as regular Amazon shoping: select your goods, add to your cart, and pay. This time, however, when you hit “Place Your Order,” Amazon will know that you’re simultaneously supporting San Francisco Village. Start today at https://smile.amazon.com/ch/26-1300020.
Happy shopping & thank you!
Community Thrift Donations
Community Thrift Store accepts donations on behalf of San Francisco Village, sells the items, and then shares the proceeds with us. Many thanks to all of you whose closets have been cleaned out and who have named SFV the beneficiary. Last year for example, we received $2000 in donations because of this partnership. Please keep us in mind when you drop your used and well-loved items off at Community Thrift Store, 623 Valencia St. Let them know our reference number for donations is 122.
