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
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.
TogetheRide is a community-wide cycling challenge that is bringing people together, even when we’re physically apart. Thousands of people are banding together to join TogetheRide and take on the audacious goal of logging a cumulative 1.2 million miles by June 30, 2021. Along the journey, we are raising $5,000,000 in critical funds to support the work of the Los Angeles LGBT Center and San Francisco AIDS Foundation and create awareness about the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic.
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.
