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 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

Dining Out For Life

Dining Out For Life San Francisco is a daylong fundraising event when the San Francisco restaurant community invites you to join them in the fight for health justice. On Wednesday, April 24, 2024, dine out at a participating restaurant and 25 percent or more of your bill will be donated to San Francisco AIDS Foundation to promote health, wellness, and social justice for communities most impacted by HIV through sexual health and substance use services, advocacy, and community partnerships.

Dine Out. End HIV.


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.
