About Friends of Lakeside Village: We are a group of unpaid volunteers working on community-generated projects to improve Lakeside Village. San Francisco Parks Alliance (SFPA) is our fiscal sponsor, meaning we are able to seek grants and solicit tax-deductible donations under their 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. Since most grant-makers fund organizations, but not individuals, fiscal sponsorship helps us raise money without having to go through the complicated process of starting our own nonprofit.
Your donation is tax-deductible within the guidelines of U.S. law. To claim a tax deduction, please keep your email donation receipt as your official record.
You can also mail a gift to SFPA at 1074 Folsom Street, San Francisco, CA 94103. Please make the check payable to San Francisco Parks Alliance with "Friends of Lakeside Village" in the memo so SFPA knows where to direct your gift! To help SFPA be in compliance with new sunshine ordinance, please include a note with your gift confirming whether or not you have a financial interest with or pending before the City of San Francisco e.g. any contract, grant, lease, or request for license, permit, or other entitlement. You can simply add a note saying "yes, I have a financial interest", or "no, I do not have a financial interest", or include this form with your check: https://www.tfaforms.com/4941012
