Donate

Every day in San Francisco, more than 7,500 people are living without a permanent home, and countless more are battling with substance addiction and/or some form of domestic violence. With your help, we can make a difference and end these vicious cycles. 
 
Your contribution enables us to provide direct services, invaluable resources, and active person-to-person care to over 1,000 people every day. It is these invaluable gifts that allow us to operate the MSC-South homeless shelter and the Riley Center for survivors of domestic abuse, among other community-centered programs.

Donor Advised Funds

Donor Advised Funds are the fastest-growing giving method and tax-efficient way to manage charitable donations. Donor Advised Funds allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time. 

SVDP-SF is proud to be a resource and partner to several of the United States’ largest Donor Advised Fund sponsor organizations and their philanthropic services teams. 

Grants made to SVDP-SF through Donor Advised Funds can be designated to a specific program or left unrestricted so they can be used where needed most.

Clients of Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, and BNY Mellon can easily make a designation through the DAF Direct window in the box below.

SVDP-SF’s tax I.D. number is 94-1571017.
