Dining Out For Life San Francisco is produced by San Francisco AIDS Foundation ensuring that the funds raised through this exciting community event stay local.
Established in 1982, San Francisco AIDS Foundation targets the radical reduction of new infections in San Francisco through education, advocacy and direct services for prevention and care. We refuse to accept that HIV transmission is inevitable. Serving more than 25,000 people per year, we work to develop new strategies to prevent new infections and to ensure the health of those living with HIV.
In addition to our programs and services, our public policy work at the local, state and national levels is critical in uncertain times. We advocate for equal access to health care, drug assistance and housing programs, harm reduction, and other issues that affect our community.
San Francisco AIDS Foundation has been awarded the Independent Charities Seal of Excellence in recognition of the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness and cost effectiveness, according to a rigorous independent review and certification process.
