Why Support the
Friends of the San Francisco Human Rights Commission?

The Friends of SF/HRC depend entirely on private support from its generous partners—visionary individuals, foundations and companies who provide the membership fees and gifts, grants and sponsorships on all levels which help to advance the cause of human rights in the Bay Area and well beyond.

Through general donations, event sponsorships and ticket sales, the Friends seeks to secure discretionary support for its grantmaking, focused on underwriting a range of activities including policy fellowships, interns, public forums and expert speaker honoraria, policy presentations in DC and at conferences, grantwriters to leverage additional support, and many other priorities.

The Friends of SF/HRC also serves as a fiscal agent for foundations and companies that seek to support programmatic initiatives in partnership with the San Francisco Human Rights Commission.
