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.
Every autumn, 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.
Santa Skivvies is an annual holiday underwear fun run/walk and fundraiser benefiting San Francisco AIDS Foundation. The route weaves throughout the streets of the iconic Castro neighborhood, starting and ending at LOOKOUT on Noe and 18th. When you sign up, we’ll send you a free pair of the iconic red Santa Skivvies underwear. Whether you choose to walk, run, scooter, skip, or skate the one-mile course, we have you covered… well, almost! Come wearing this year’s skivvies, festive holiday attire, or whatever makes you feel fabulous! We welcome every body.
Dining Out For Life
Join us for the 21st annual Dining Out For Life San Francisco and its newly re-imagined format that lets you support multiple local restaurants between April 26-30. When you order from a participating restaurant’s Dining Out for Life menu, a portion 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.
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.
