Many thanks to our generous donors for supporting neighborhood projects: 

"Friends of Lakeside Village" is a nonprofit of residents and businesses. Over the years, projects have included better lighting along the M-line tracks, tree trimming, graffiti abatement, and Lakeside Landing

We have listened to your ideas for fundraising priorities (below). We will add new projects so please check back regularly! 

$5 Recurring Donation

We have been busy organizing bands, block parties, and family activities. Please consider a recurring $5 donation to assist with expenses such as printing flyers and providing beverages free of charge!

Flowers $20

Are you enjoying the community gardens at Lakeside Landing and along Ocean Ave? Your gift will help add more flowers to Lakeside Village. $20 buys a small assortment of beautiful flowers at wholesale prices.

Small Checkers $40

Fun for the whole family! Teens painted small boards for games on the Lakeside Landing benches. $40 buys two replacement sets of small checkers in waterproof containers for everyone to play! 

Activities $100

Lakeside Landing hosts many free events for families. $100 provides a stipend to teachers for classes e.g. a clinic to help rescue your potted plants -- or an expert to help rescue your giant chess game!

Make a recurring donation!

$5 per month: skip an on-demand movie!

$20 per month: skip a calamari meal (and save a seal's friend)!

About Friends of Lakeside Village: We are a group of unpaid volunteers working on community-generated projects in Lakeside Village. We are a fiscally sponsored partner of San Francisco Parks Alliance (SFPA), 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 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:
