When You Support Edgewood, You Support Your Community

Edgewood is able to accomplish amazing things for youth thanks in part to the support and donations from our community. There are so many ways you can give to Edgewood and continue to make a difference in the life of a child. Which way will you give?


Make a monetary gift

Your gift to Edgewood helps us provide brighter futures to over 9,000 children and families each year. You can make a donation to Edgewood online, over the phone, or by mail. You can also support Edgewood’s work with a monthly contribution.  For as little as $25 a month or whatever amount fits your budget, you can help Edgewood continue to provide a stable climate of healing for children and families who have experienced trauma and uncertainty. Small gifts add up so that we can provide them with year-round services that offer much-needed routine and structure.

  • An investment of $100 can provide art supplies that help a youth gain healing therapy through our Expressive Arts program that provides a creative outlet to help them overcome trauma.
  • A contribution of $50 offers a suitcase to a child who has improved and is ready to leave our residential program for a lower level of care or return to be cared for by a family member.
  • A gift of $25 can cover transportation costs for a young adult between the ages of 18 and 25 who has aged out of the foster care system and needs help finding work or housing.

To donate over the phone, call us at (415) 375-7576.  We accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.

To donate by mail, send a check or money order made payable to Edgewood Center for Children and Families, Attention: Development Department, 1801 Vicente Street, San Francisco, CA 94116.
