San Francisco small businesses are suffering. We are asking for your help.
As the COVID-19 virus takes its toll in communities around the nation and the world, here at home in San Francisco, small businesses, and the people they employ, have been hit particularly hard.
With the shelter in place order now in effect, and with it likely to be extended for months to come, we are reaching out to San Franciscans to help their own in this time of crisis.
Locally owned clothing stores, hair salons, spas, bars, cafes, restaurants, and gyms in the neighborhoods in which you live and shop, are in imminent danger of going under, in light of the necessary measures being taken to combat the coronavirus.
Don’t let that happen.
WE ASK that you SHARE THIS PAGE with TEN OTHERS, and to encourage them to DONATE and SHARE with TEN of their FRIENDS or COLLEAGUES. Together we can all spread the word, dig deep and donate, and help San Francisco’s small businesses recover and thrive again.
Your generous donation we will be passed directly to our member associations (see full list below) so they can distribute to the small businesses in their district that are most in need. 100% of funds received will go to the neighborhoods listed. SFCDMA will pay all administrative fees.
For 70 years San Francisco Council of District Merchants Associations (SFCDMA) has represented and looked out for the interests of local San Francisco merchants associations and the small businesses they represent. Our mission is to protect, preserve, and promote small businesses in San Francisco.
With your help, we can assist small businesses in San Francisco to weather this storm and emerge on the other side of this crisis intact and ready to serve the neighborhoods that are the backbone of the city we all love.
To all of those that have donated and sent their support so far, THANK YOU!
We have received enough attention and outreach that our GoFundMe campaign has been moved to this page in the GoFundMe nonprofit section. It would not have happened if it were not for our charter campaign supporters.
We would like to thank our fiscal sponsors Greater West Portal Neighborhood Association for lending us their support, so we can reach out and help San Francisco's small businesses during this crisis.
Thank you again and please spread the word.
With many thanks for your support,
San Francisco Council of District Merchants Associations
