Young Professionals Council Day of Service

Our Young Professionals Council brings together their passion, skills, and networks to elevate the essential support St. Anthony’s provides every day. Last weekend, their first-ever volunteer event brought 50 young San Franciscans together for a crash course in all things St. Anthony’s: our history, our values, our services, and most importantly, our guests. The group kicked off the day with a justice education orientation, learning about the Tenderloin neighborhood and the population we serve. They then headed out to volunteer in our Dining Room and Free Clothing Programs, followed by tours of the rest of our Golden Gate campus, including our Medical Clinic, Technology Lab, Social Work Center and prep kitchen. Thank you all for sharing your time and talent with us! Check out photos from our YPC’s day of service...

Super Bowl Kicks Off with Smiles at St. Anthony’s

Super Bowl Sunday kicked off with smiles at St. Anthony’s. Thanks to a generous donor, homeless veterans Orrin and Larry—one ex-Army, the other ex-Marines—headed to the big game with full VIP access, riding in style with a car service from the Tenderloin to Levi’s Stadium. This effort was made possible thanks to the generous efforts of our Dining Room volunteer John Fitzgerald, who found our veterans; PrimeSport, who provided VIP passes; David Raih, a coach for the Green Bay Packers; and Chris Raih of Zambezi who brought it all together. Cheers to Orrin and Larry’s super Sunday—let us work to make the rest of the year feel just as special for our underserved and overlooked brothers and...

The Many Ways To Give Hope

St. Anthony’s relies on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations to support the work we do every day.  St. Anthony’s does not receive any federal or state dollars to sustain this work. You can give hope this holiday season by supporting St. Anthony’s help San Francisco’s most vulnerable residents build better futures in a number of ways: Make an annual or monthly recurring gift You can securely and easily make an online gift, either as a one–time annual gift or set up monthly recurring gifts to make an even bigger impact. Donate Now. Donate Stock   Giving long-term, appreciated securities may provide greater benefits to both you and St. Anthony’s. By donating stock directly to St. Anthony’s, you can avoid paying capital gain taxes on the gain in value when the stock or mutual fund is sold. Learn More. Donate a Car St. Anthony’s partners with Vehicles For Charity to auction your vehicle and the proceeds benefit St. Anthony’s.  You get the tax benefit of the sold amount which can often be greater than the maximum amount the IRS allows for an outright charitable donation.  Contact Vehicles for Charity to get started. Matching Gifts  Many employers throughout the Bay Area have matching gift programs to encourage employees to support their favorite charities, either in cash donations or volunteer hours. These programs can double and sometimes even triple your gift to St. Anthony’s.  Your Human Resources department can get you started.
