Help us complete the $6 Million Matching Gift Challenge to build Francisco Park!

Francisco Park is the city’s largest public park project in which a majority of the design, construction, and maintenance costs will be covered by private donations.

We just received a $6 million matching gift challenge from a prominent San Francisco family who wishes to remain anonymous but wants to help ensure Francisco Park is built. If we meet this challenge before it expires at the end of 2018, we will reach our fundraising goal and construction can begin.

Will you help us?

“We are at a tipping point. That is why we decided to support Francisco Park in a meaningful way.”
—Chris Larsen, Leadership Donor

“Francisco Park is for our children and our future generations. There is no better investment.”
—Helen Hilton Raiser, Board Member and Leadership Donor

Now we need our community to step up and help us reach our goal!

Here is our progress so far:

With Our Gratitude

The Campaign for Francisco Park gratefully acknowledges the support of the following donors.
