Your donation at work
Donations to San Francisco AIDS Foundation help provide essential services for HIV prevention and care. While government funding sometimes provides the bulk of the resources to deliver vital services, private support like yours bridges the gap (an average of 30%) and provides us the resources to expand critical services beyond current government funding limitations and fully serve those in need.
In addition to our programs and services, our public policy work impacts legislation at the local, state and national levels: We advocate for equal access to health care, drug assistance programs, and other issues that affect our community. Your support helps people in every corner of the country who are impacted by HIV.

The seal is awarded to members of Independent Charities of America and Local Independent Charities of America that have, upon rigorous independent review, been able to certify, document, and demonstrate on an annual basis that they meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness.
