RISE TO THE CHALLENGE |
EMERGE STRONG


A NOVEL CORONAVIRUS CRISIS AND POST-CRISIS RESPONSE FUND

We Asked, You Stepped Up.

We want to thank all of our donors who have renewed their gifts this year and new donors who have joined our community. Because you stood shoulder to shoulder with us during the early days of the pandemic, we were able to meet this crisis head-on and serve a critical role for youth and their families. Your support gave us the confidence to push forward when everything was uncertain. You allowed us to keep our staff team in place through May and gave us the chance to gracefully transition staff out of the organization whose roles were no longer essential to our services to you, families, and communities.

Thank You to Our Campaign Supporters

We gratefully acknowledge the following corporate and foundation partners who have embraced us with their generosity. Their critical support is helping BGCSF support youth and families now during this crisis and will enable us to emerge strong from this pandemic.

Your Impact

Immediately upon announcing the shelter-in-place order in San Francisco, the City named us an essential business. We initially kept seven Clubs open before reducing to four—Hunters Point, Visitacion Valley, Sunnydale, and our Columbia Park Clubhouse in the Mission (this Club was open 13 hours per day to meet the needs of hospital workers, other emergency-services workers, and essential City workers).

On June 15, as the City instituted Phase One reopening, we started our summer program, expanding our services to ten locations for in-Club services and eight locations for virtual programming.


As our nation confronts racial injustice, our High School Services team has engaged with 236 youth virtually in various leadership programs, providing them a forum to amplify and activate their perspectives and find opportunities to lead. The Education team has been focused on reducing summer learning loss by providing virtual and in-Club academic support including but not limited to literacy and STEM enrichment programs.


Looking Ahead

As we prepare for the new school year with no signs of the health crisis abating, our team is gearing up for more frontline services. The disproportionate impact of this pandemic on people of color shines a light on the complex, often multi-generational challenges that our families face. BGCSF remains resolute in standing on the side of the kids and families who needs us most. Our plan is to keep ten sites open while continuing to offer virtual services at no less than eight locations.

We are grateful that you have stood by our side throughout this long and protracted crisis, helping us EMERGE STRONG - and we hope you will continue to stay with us. These are challenging times for everyone, but more than ever, the Club is a beacon of hope for kids and families.

Our Volunteers

Volunteers are an integral part of the BGCSF community. Our volunteer program invites individuals and companies to contribute their time and talent to empower San Francisco youth. During this past year, our volunteers stood shoulder-to-shoulder with us as we faced the public health crisis of a lifetime.

Standing with our AAPI Community

BGCSF stands for peace, equity, inclusion, and opportunity for all people. We believe we are better in every way through greater diversity — wiser, stronger, more creative, more resilient, more talented, more impactful, and more aware. BGCSF stands in solidarity with our Asian-American and Pacific Islander youth, BGCSF colleagues, partners, friends, and family.

Beyond Empathy: Combating Racism Against Asian Americans

In light of the alarming hate crimes against Asian Americans in the Bay Area and across the country, Tenderloin Clubhouse Director Michael Vuong reflected on his response in both his personal life and with the youth he serves.
