Your support has a direct impact on the City’s resiliency.
For the fiscal year 2016/2017, SF CARD’s fundraising goal is $6,000. Help us achieve this year’s goal by making a 100%, tax-deductible donation. SF CARD is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that serves clients throughout the Bay Area and over the next 12 months will directly:
- Empower critical social service providers by helping them write their emergency plans and continuity plans. What does that mean? We will give them step-by-step guidance throughout the year in figuring out how they will keep functioning when they will not have water, power, or a regular space to operate. Organizations include: Curry Senior Center, GLIDE health clinic, Canal Alliance, and Contra Costa Crisis Center. We help to keep the San Francisco Bay Area’s safety-net working after a major disaster.
- Protect the elderly from heat stroke. How do isolated seniors receive help during a heat wave? We’ll accomplish this with our Heat Wave Program, which this year aims to reach 4000 elderly residents in partnership with our clients and partners, such as the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation, the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank, Meals on Wheels of San Francisco, and many more.
- Deliver personal preparedness training to over 2000 people. Who will participate? People like Cindy R, who we taught how to build a go-kit for her favorite pet in the world, Tot, who is pictured below.
- Administer the San Francisco Voluntary Organizations Active in a Disaster (SF VOAD) city-wide response program. Why is that important? Our endeavor is to ensure that social service agencies such as the Salvation Army, the American Red Cross, and Jewish Family and Children’s Services coordinate their disaster response efforts quickly and efficiently after a large earthquake, a multi-structure fire, or another disaster.
