San Francisco General Hospital Foundation

FGS&Co. holds the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation close to our heart. Through the proceeds of each purchase of a product made exclusively for the General Hospital Foundation, we enable the San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (The General) to provide high-quality medical care to patients and their families. The Foundation is dedicated to promoting excellence in research, education and care for all at The General. As the City's only provider of trauma and psychiatric emergency services, The General provides health care to 100,000 patients annually, including some of the City's most vulnerable. In addition, it is one of the foremost research centers for trauma in the country. For more information on The General, please visit San Francisco General Hospital Foundation .

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) is committed to being the end of breast cancer by advancing the world's most promising research. Founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, BCRF-funded investigators have been deeply involved in every major breakthrough in breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.

We use our powerful networks to find, fund, and amplify the courageous work of women who are building social movements and challenging the status quo.

Lava Mae

The Lava Mae mission is simple: to deliver dignity and unlock opportunity for those experiencing homelessness - one mobile shower at a time. Fundamental to their mission is the core belief that everyone has the right to be clean, and those experiencing homelessness can't access jobs and housing or maintain their health and wellbeing if they can't get clean. Lava Mae's work is rooted in radical hospitality - by treating their guests with compassion they are able to learn their names, their stories and ultimately honor their humanity through their services. With hygiene comes dignity, and with dignity, opportunity.
