BALEAF's Dependable Donor

Last year, over 3,800 CCSF employees (970 of which are Leadership Givers pledging $500 or more) raised more than $1.23 million for over 1,200 non-profit organizations.

This year, we hope to raise $1 million for charity. As the pandemic continues to impact our local and global communities, deserving charities and the people they serve are in even greater need. Through this Campaign, we want to show that San Francisco cares, now more than ever!
