Help fund OurTownSF Nonprofit Expo 2018.

This is the 3rd annual resource fair "The largest SF LGBTQ nonprofit expo ever!" with over 100 groups in categories including arts, community, fundraiser, legal, political, recovery, well-being & spiritual.  Connections at the Expo help them become more financially secure with new members, volunteers and donors.   

Date: Saturday, October 20, 12:30PM-4:30PM
Location: Eureka Valley Rec Ctr, 100 Collingwood St. 
Event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1988951171146000/

There is no charge for participation by SF LGBTQ nonprofits nor admission to the Expo and we hope to maintain that policy.  In the past, donations by individuals and sponsors barely covered  expenses. Donations are appreciated in order to cover future expenses related to food, entertainment, promotion, sound system and decorations and helps us continue to keep up with the demand to add more nonprofits and attract attendees.

The Expo includes voter registration, HIV testing and health insurance assistance. This year we are adding a kids & family area handled by our collaborating partner Our Family Coalition plus these resource areas: HIV & Aging, women, Latino, youth & legal/political.

See video of the 2017 Nonprofit Expo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFgvCPIZFRw) We operate as an all-volunteer program of the 501©3 Richmond/Ermet Aid Foundation. 

OurTownSF, (online as ourtownsf.org - a resource guide to SF LGBTQ nonprofit service agencies, arts and athletic groups) produces this vital Expo in partnership with the Eureka Valley Recreation Center & TurnOut.  

Your contribution to OurTownSF Nonprofit Expo 2018 assures that this event draws well-deserved and much-needed support to over 100 SF LGBTQ groups.  Small and large tax-deductible donations as well as sponsors are welcome.   Donors will be listed on the Expo webpage and at the Expo itself.  

Sponsors: One sponsor of $2,500 or more will re-name the Expo to include their business name. Sponsors who make a tax-deductible donation of $500 receive their name in print and online in our promotional material.   They also receive promotion at the event, use of sponsor table at the event plus receive an ad on OurTownSF.org for 6 months.  A full year ad is provided with a donation of $600 or more.

Silent auction items:  This year's Expo will include an expanded silent auction.  Gift certificates are preferred.  Eureka Valley Recreation Center rules stipulate that no alcohol may be accepted.
