Grants and in-kind services to California nonprofit organizations to support and enhance the emotional and social well-being of local youth and elderly residents. Support is provided in the form of grant funds and volunteer services for specific community programs. Activities must serve the residents of the County of San Francisco.

  • Direct Funding – These funds directly benefit the nonprofit organization and are generally unrestricted, with the exception that the JLSF is unable to fund salaries. 
  • Indirect Funding – These funds directly support the JLSF volunteers in their development or execution of activities with nonprofit organizations. Examples of indirect funding include covering costs to purchase necessary supplies or food-related to the specific programs and activities managed by JLSF volunteers.
  • Volunteer Support –  A dedicated committee of approximately 10-30 JLSF volunteers that provide approximately 3-5 hours per person per month of direct support to the nonprofit partner.

  • Demonstrate that the specific program aligns with the JLSF’s focus of advancing the social and emotional health of at-risk youth and elderly populations
