The San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band has completed our first Challenge Grant, a two-year program from Cummings Properties. The overall goal of this capacity-building grant was to help the San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band develop and maintain its financial stability and sustainability.
Over the two years of the Challenge Grant, we raised $176,125, exceeding our goal to raise $50,000 more in new funds for a total of $147,000 by June 30, 2014. We earned the maximum matching amount from Cummings Properties. Thanks to our donors for their generous tax-deductible donations.
