Supporters of the Grove are building an endowment to help ensure its ongoing care and maintenance. We believe that all government funding designated for HIV/AIDS should be used for direct services. Therefore we continue to rely primarily on private funding, gathering support from individuals, foundations and corporations to accomplish our mission.
There are many ways to give to the National AIDS Memorial Grove. Donations are made for many reasons, some in memory or in honor of loved ones. The Grove’s Ensure Remembrance Campaign provides gift and recognition opportunities for individuals, corporations and organizations helping to finish site improvements or to reach the endowment goal for the perpetual care of the Grove.
General donations can be sent to the National AIDS Memorial Grove by sending a check, money order, or credit card information to the Grove as follows:
National AIDS Memorial Grove
P.O. Box 2270
San Francisco, CA 94126-2270
You may download the donation form and print it out if you wish to send it in with your gift. If you do not use this form, and your gift is in memory or in honor of someone, please make a note in the corner of your check or include the information on an attached sheet of paper.
If you would like us to notify others of your gift, please give us their name and address as well. For gifts in memory of, or in honor of, someone, we will send an aknowledgement stating that the gift was made in honor of, or in memory of, whomever you choose.
For donations to the Circle of Friends, please download the donation form and completely fill out the box on the right side and mail to the office with your payment.
