We are so excited to announce the reception of a Challenge Grant from the Sobrato Family Foundation!!!! This grant is a 2:1 Challenge Grant. The first payment was made up front for a total of $90,000! We must now raise $90,000 from private, first-time, lapsed, or current donors who increase their regular gifts.

The second grant payment is contingent on our being able to successfully meet the required match. If we able able to successfully raise 90,000 between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017, Sobrato will gift us with another 94,000 (that includes a COLA Increase of 4,500 ;-). So, if you are a new donor, or someone who supports us regularly but would like to up your gift a bit, this would be an excellent time to do so! As always I so thank you for your belief in OUR work and your gracious support of it!!!!


Please consider making a donation to the St Francis Center of Redwood City to double the impact of your support! For every new dollar we receive from community members like you, the Sobrato Family Foundation will match it – times two – up to 90,000.

Earlier this year, the Sobrato Family Foundation chose our agency to receive a 2:1 Challenge Grant of 184,000. If our agency receives 90,000 in new or increased donations from individual community members, the Foundation will match and double those donations, resulting in a <90,000+ 94,000 + your gifts of 90,000 for a total of 184,000 from Sobrato and 90,000 from all of YOU! These funds will be used to funds support our general operations and community programming.
