Why should I fundraise for Santa Skivvies Run?
Not only is Santa Skivvies Run a really fun event, it’s also a major fundraiser of San Francisco AIDS Foundation. San Francisco AIDS Foundation works to end the HIV epidemic in the city where it began, and eventually everywhere. Established in 1982, our mission is the radical reduction of new infections in San Francisco because we refuse to accept HIV as inevitable. Through education, advocacy and direct services for prevention and care, we are confronting HIV in communities most vulnerable to HIV. The money raised by participants will enable San Francisco AIDS Foundation to continue these efforts. You can learn more about San Francisco AIDS Foundation by visiting our website at sfaf.org.
Is it easy to fundraise?
YES! Once you start asking around, you’ll be surprised by the generosity of the people you know – and sometimes even people you don’t know. When you register, we’ll set you up with your own personal fundraising page, provide you access to a variety of social fundraising tools; and coach you along the way, providing you with fundraising advice, tips, and tricks. You’ll raise more than you thought you could in no time.
