AIDS/BREAST CANCER EMERGENCY FUNDS
The AIDS Emergency Fund (AEF) provides short-term emergency financial assistance to San Franciscans battling HIV/AIDS. Since 1982, the AEF has rallied community support to help pay basic living costs such as rent, utility bills and medical expenses for poverty-level San Franciscans with disabling HIV or AIDS. Annually, the AEF helps nearly 2,500 clients.
The Breast Cancer Emergency Fund (BCEF) was founded in 2001, modeled after the AIDS Emergency Fund. The BCEF provides short-term emergency financial assistance to low-income San Franciscans battling breast cancer. The BCEF also makes referrals to agencies that can provide longer-term help with practical and emotional support and other vital services.
