WHY DONATE TO REAF?

The Richmond/Ermet Aid Foundation (REAF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency who's mission is to raise funds for and awareness about AIDS/HIV services, under served youth and hunger programs primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area through the production of quality entertainment events. Founded in 1995 by two mothers, Barbara Richmond and Peggy Ermet, who each lost their only sons to AIDS as a way of honoring their memories and of supporting all the other sons and daughters still living with HIV, REAF has distributed well over $3,000,000 to 32 different agencies. We are proud that 100% of ticket sales always go directly to the beneficiaries.

Each year, an increasing number of agencies apply to REAF for funding and we are constantly looking for ways to expand programs and funding to these agencies. The cost of running our agency limits the amount of programs and funding we are able to provide. Your tax-deductible gift can help us maintain and expand the support we are able to provide to the beneficiary agencies of "Help is on the Way" events. Your gift, in honor of a friend you wish to acknowledge or in memory of someone dear you may have lost, can have a direct impact on the lives of so many who depend on the services of the agencies we support..  REAF will be happy to send an acknowledgement card to the person of your choosing acknowledging your gift either in honor of or in memory of someone you wish to remember. Just download and fill out the form and mail it with your gift to The Richmond/Ermet Aid Foundation.
