Who We Are
Founded in 1990, the San Francisco Family Foundation provides financial assistance
to individual seniors in the San Francisco Bay Area, who during their lifetimes
have shown personal involvement in unselfishly giving, now need help themselves,
and have no other means of support. All gifts are given through case management
social service agencies who apply on behalf of their clients.
Typically, recipients have led active and busy lives, yet have shown personal involvement
in giving of themselves outside of their employment and families, finding time for
such activities as helping sick neighbors, delivering food, working with youth or
other seniors, presenting theatre, poetry and songs to cheer the lives of others,
Grants are currently limited to $600 or less. Funds have been donated towards (for
example) medical and general survival expenses, home help, small home repairs, dental
expenses, participation in art programs to improve quality of life, hearing aids,
home furnishings, lift chairs, clothing, day care etc., as well as special items
such as move-in security deposits, airline tickets to visit relatives, storage and
moving cost, etc..
All gifts are given anonymously.
