FEEDING THE NEEDY
Providing aid for HIV services, hunger programs and support for homeless and disenfranchised youth and seniors
The Richmond/Ermet Aid Foundation (REAF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that raises funds for local community organizations through the production of quality entertainment fundraising events. Proceeds from these events are given as grants to selected beneficiaries in the community. Areas of focus include HIV/AIDS services, hunger programs, and programs for homeless and disenfranchised youth and seniors.
REAF’s fundraising events featuring many stars from the Broadway stage, film, television, and the recording industry. Events include a flagship concert and gala titled Help is on the Way; a similar holiday-themed concert titled Help is on the Way for the Holidays; an ongoing One Night Only benefit cabaret series of performances featuring the casts of touring Broadway Shows; and Broadway Bares: San Francisco Strips, a burlesque-style strip show in partnership with Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
REAF is proud to have provided more than $4 million in funding to support local non-profit agencies since its inception, and that 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales have always gone directly to its beneficiary agencies.
After 26 years of producing outstanding, highly anticipated events in San Francisco, REAF is expanding to support Palm Springs and Coachella Valley non-profit organizations through fundraising events, starting in 2022. REAF-PS aims to raise funds for HIV/AIDS services, food/hunger programs, underserved seniors, and theater and arts programs.
