Legacy Society


Planned giving can be an advantageous way to provide a future gift to San Francisco AIDS Foundation. By remembering the foundation for any amount in your estate plans, you ensure the continuation of vital education, advocacy and direct services for the prevention and care of those living with and at risk for HIV/AIDS. Please consider joining the Legacy Society. With your commitment, you are bringing us one step closer to our goal of making San Francisco the first U.S. city to end HIV transmission, once and for all.

If you have decided to include San Francisco AIDS Foundation in your estate plans, please let us know.  We would like to thank you for your generosity and show you our appreciation by including you as a member of San Francisco AIDS Foundation’s honorary society, the Legacy Society.  The foundation periodically holds special events for Legacy Society members. Members who have given their permission to list their names are also recognized in the foundation’s annual report to the community.  For those who wish to remain anonymous, the foundation will honor that request.

There are several ways to leave a legacy to San Francisco AIDS Foundation:

  • Name San Francisco AIDS Foundation as a beneficiary of your bank account, Individual Retirement Account ( IRA), or life insurance policy.
  • Providing for San Francisco AIDS Foundation in your will or trust.
  • Make a bequest of real estate, a valuable work of art or other personal property.

The following sample provision may be helpful to you and your attorney.

“I give, devise, and bequeath to San Francisco AIDS Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation as described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and located in San Francisco, California, or its successor organization, $___________ (insert dollar amount,  percent of estate, or description of property to be donated) to be used for its general support and charitable purposes.”

Before making your estate plans, you should consult with a qualified estate planner, financial planner and/or attorney.  

Please contact Stacy Youkilis, Director of Philanthropy at 415-487-3002 or at syoukilis@sfaf.org for further information on the foundation’s Legacy Society, or to inform us that the foundation is already in your estate plans.
