Community Benefit Grants Awarded …

Eight organizations were recently awarded grants through the YBCBD’s Community Benefit Fund to improve quality of life in Yerba Buena. Our Board approved $75,000 to support public art, community engagement, streetscape improvements, public safety, and more. Since 2009, we’ve granted more than $1 million to neighborhood organizations. Spring 2017 recipients include:

• Contemporary Jewish Museum: Free Community Days
• Filipino-American Development Foundation: Parol Lantern Festival
• Market Street Association: Holiday Snowflake Decorations
• SF Bike Education Fund: Improving Bicycle Safety
• TODCO: Vertical Garden at Alice Street Community Gardens
• Yerba Buena Arts & Events: Music, Magic and Circus Performances
• Yerba Buena Alliance: Neighborhood Artwalk

More grants will be awarded this fall. The grants are made possible by Yerba Buena property owners as part of the YBCBD’s work to make our great neighborhood even better.
