Who Benefits from our fundraising?
From the 2022 AIDS Walk website:
“AIDS Walk San Francisco recognizes that no one organization can meet all the needs of people living with HIV/AIDS. That is why the event emphasizes not one voice, but many voices; not just services in one city; but rather the Bay Area wide effort to bring this epidemic to an end.
Through the Co-Beneficiary Teams Program, AIDS Walk San Francisco makes available the highly successful infrastructure used by its Teams Department to organize corporate and community involvement in the event. These organizations participate as fundraising teams in AIDS Walk San Francisco at no cost to themselves, and they keep a majority of the funds they raise.”
