As we head into the holidays and make plans to ring in the new year, I have been reflecting on theresiliency of the Bay Area community and the nonprofits and volunteers who are so giving of their time. Without them, I often wonder, where would we be? If only we could operate as an organization solely on the enthusiasm of our community to bring people together for shared experiences, create economic opportunities and be able to offer resources without the pressure of annual budgets and expenses in an increasingly expensive region.
With current events manyare concerned about job security and the rising costs of living. If you arenot in a position to give financially, the San Francisco Design Week Community is here for you tooffer resources and support. If you are in a position to give, please give locally.
As my husband and I sit around the dinner table with our checkbook making our lists of organizations we support, we are especially grateful for nonprofits that bring the design communitytogether to gather, share experiences and allow us to connect with professional opportunities.
It is my hope that you will consider supporting San Francisco Design Week with a year end financialgift, corporate employee matching gift or by keeping us in mind for the future when estate planning to support our mission.
Thank you to the hundreds of volunteers who give their time, our donors and the designers and design adjacent individuals who make this community so special. Warmly,
Board of Directors
Creating international opportunities for designers and adjacent industries since 2006
