The San Diego HIV Funding Collaborative (SDHFC) is a program established in 1990 by a group of local funders and community members concerned with the impact of HIV/AIDS on the San Diego region. Its mission is to raise, leverage and collaboratively allocate private funds in order to reduce the impact of HIV in the San Diego region.
By supporting the SDHFC, we are able to focus our energy on producing and promoting events to raise funds and awareness, rather than the administration of vetting and qualifying multiple beneficiary organizations. Additionally, the board of Think Red Project is chaired by the San Diego Human Dignity Foundation (SDHDF),so we help steer where our monies go, to ensure we are maximizing impact.As of 2020, the SDHFC currently supports the following organizations, all of which are non-profit organizations that are heavily involved in serving the San Diego HIV/AIDS communities:
- Christie’s Place - HIV/AIDS services for women, children and families.
- Fraternity House - provider of residential care homes for men and women living with HIV/AIDS.
