Make a tax-deductible contribution

These efforts include providing shelter, food and other assistance to individuals, families, small businesses, and nonprofits in San Francisco.

You can pay online by card or electronic check.

You can also pay by check. 

If paying by check, please make payments to "The Office of the Controller.” Please include “Give2SF/COVID-19” in the memo line. Checks can be mailed to:

Why donate?

Your tax-deductible donations will help protect the health of San Francisco and support the most vulnerable, including individuals, families, and local businesses.

Donations will directly support:

  • Critical facilities and supplies needed to protect the health of all San Franciscans in the face of COVID-19.
  • Taking care of our most medically and economically vulnerable neighbors, including individuals who must isolate per public health guidance and those facing economic hardship or a housing crisis related to COVID-19.
  • Local businesses and nonprofits that are not only significant contributors to the economy, they are valued parts of our neighborhoods. Support will help businesses weather temporary closures or reduced demand due to the public health crisis.  

Donations of any amount can be made. Donations over $100 will be acknowledged on the City of San Francisco website.
