I've been a member for more than 12 years. There are three big reasons I continue to both support and be part of the SFBC: 1) It's more than a non-profit. There are many organizations that I donate money to, but the SFBC is a group that I BELONG to. It's a community of people (almost 10,000 strong) that want to make SF a better city to live in and take an active role in making this happen. 2) It's fun. From volunteer nights to Winterfest to, believe it or not, our board meetings, the SFBC events are a lot of fun. Our members have a lot of enthusiasm for what we do. 3) We get results. I can see the effects of my involvement in the SFBC every time I bike down the Howard Street bike lanes, meet with City Supervisors and see a 5 year old learning to bike in Golden Gate Park.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
entirely dedicated to the cause and appreciative of my involvement.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
MY ROLE:Board Member & I helped organize various education, community and advocacy programs.
