I am proud to work for Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco (BGCSF), an organization that continuously innovates and evolves to address the needs of our community. I am writing this blog post to share an important opportunity and to ask for your support in spreading the word!

BGCSF is currently offering free support and training to Black-serving and Black-led individuals and organizations participating in The Dream Keeper Initiative, a citywide effort launched in 2021 to reinvest $120 million over two years into San Francisco’s diverse Black communities. Utilizing our expertise as a 132-year old community-based organization in San Francisco, BGCSF is uniquely positioned to help small or developing nonprofits build their capacity to become strong, stable, and effective organizations. 

BGCSF enthusiastically supports this initiative and we are thrilled to be a partner organization. We are offering Black-serving and Black-led community-based organizations and nonprofits technical assistance and capacity-building support and guidance in the following areas:

  • Finance 
  • Training & Professional Development 
  • Institutional Giving Fundraising 
  • Government Relations & Advocacy
  • Executive-Level Consulting 
  • Legal Services/Risk/Compliance

In order to receive free support and training, please complete this brief questionnaire and we will follow-up directly. If you know of organizations that could benefit from this opportunity, please encourage them to reach out to us to avail themselves of this free service.

I hope that you will take the time to learn more about the Dream Keeper Initiative. Please help us spread the word about this important opportunity as well as how BGCSF can assist participants!
