Fundraising events offer a way for our community to gather together and express their commitment to the cause, while providing vital opportunities to contribute to our work.
In addition to Tribute Celebration, our annual gala, we also offer chances for you to raise funds from your network, and have a ton of fun doing it. Every year, thousands of community members participate in one of our peer-to-peer events including AIDS/LifeCycle, Dining Out For Life, Santa Skivvies Run and Do It Yourself fundraising events.
All our events generate revenue that allows us to develop or sustain innovative and dynamic programming, while also bringing in a little sparkle.
Ensure that the lifesaving work continues, and have a lot of fun doing it. We know you’re passionate about ending the HIV epidemic and supporting our communities, and we can’t wait to see you at an upcoming event.
“It’s moments like these where we get to come together with our chosen families, with our community and remind ourselves, that we are better together, that we’ve been here before, that we can do this together.”Billy Porter 2018 Tribute honoree and star of FX's POSE
Do It Yourself
Throughout the year, host your own fundraising event to support our work. Whether you’re participating in an existing athletic event or want to create your own event, we’ll provide you with a step-by-step guide.
Santa Skivvies Run
Drop trou and join us for a festive 1-mile fun run through the streets of the Castro in December. Participants raise funds to support our work and show off their favorite holiday skivvies during the run and afterparty.
AIDS/LifeCycle is a fully supported, 7 day, 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles, co-produced by and benefiting San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. The event raises awareness about the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic and funds services such as HIV testing, prevention, care, and much more. Join as a Rider, a Roadie or a Virtual Cyclist.
Please note: Given the recent guidance that limits public gatherings for an indeterminate amount of time, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the AIDS/LifeCycle 2020 event. Find out more at aidslifecycle.org.
Every September, we get fancy for our annual evening gala, with dinner, drinks and special entertainment. Tribute Celebration honors leaders in the fight to end the HIV epidemic.
Dining IN For Life
Following the most recent recommendations from the San Francisco Department of Public Health, we’re making some changes to the Dining Out For Life San Francisco. It’s now an online fundraising event — Dining IN for Life! Support your favorite participating restaurant and donate to support our essential services.
