Sol Sisters was approved for our first grant, from Folsom Street Events! As a beneficiary we had to commit to providing 30+ volunteers for both of their street fairs.
7/31/16 Up Your Alley Street Fair
9/25/16 Folsom Street Fair
& guess what....
WE DID IT ! ! !
Thank you to all our awesome volunteers who donated their time to help us get this grant. We are forever thankful!
Since Folsom Street Events first began, the organization has donated nearly $5.5 million to San Francisco-based and national charities. Volunteers who give their time to help our events run smoothly are the biggest reason that we are able to give away as much as we do. By donating their time on behalf of one of our Major or Supporting Beneficiaries, volunteers for our events help our Beneficiaries be successful, and therefore earn grants which fund specific and inspiring projects in the areas of The Arts, Health and Human Services, and Social Justice. Our beneficiaries are classified as either Major or Supporting Beneficiaries. Major Beneficiaries tend to be larger organizations, and Supporting Beneficiaries usually have smaller budgets and staffs. Every one of these organizations makes a profound difference in our communities, and we are proud to partner with our 2016 Beneficiaries. " via Folsom Street Events website
