OTTP-SF Holiday Gift Campaign

On November 20th, 2020, we announced our first ever Holiday Gift Campaign for an international day of giving called Giving Tuesday. Our goal was simple. We hoped to bring a little holiday cheer to the youth we serve by giving them a special gift.

Each youth selected a gift they wanted to receive for the holiday season and the gift was then added to our AmazonSmile wishlist. The gifts included art supplies for therapeutic activities, toys to play with at home while quarantining, clothes to help them stay warm during the chilly winter months, and so much more. With the help of our generous donors, every youth (more than 200!) received the gift they requested.

Thank you to all who supported this fundraiser!

OTTP-SF Emergency Healing Fundraiser

On August 25th, 2020, we launched our Emergency Healing Fundraiser through GoFundMe Charity. Our goal was to make up for a potential loss of funding due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we hoped to raise $50,000. With the help of more than 100 amazing donors, and a generous matching gift from the San Francisco-based software company, Webflow, we are thrilled to share that we have nearly doubled our fundraising goal!

With the funds raised we will be able to provide additional services to children ages 3-5 in our Shoestrings program. This program provides children support in learning to regulate emotions and develop skills at school and at home to improve likelihood for future academic success.

In addition to expanding services within the Shoestrings program, we will also be able to maintain our current caseloads within our other programs as well. Furthermore, we will be using funds raised to create an incentive program for the youth that we serve and purchasing essential items to help them throughout the duration of the pandemic. Thanks to your support, no young person will have to go without our services!

2nd Annual Youth Empowerment Fundraiser

On May 30th, 2019, we held our 2nd Annual youth Empowerment Fundraiser, sponsored by Realize CPA, at F8 Nightclub and Bar. Our goal was to raise funds to provide the youth we serve with food, school supplies, interview clothes, supplies for coping activities, and so much more. The funds raised also helped to provide increased services to more youth in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Staff, family, friends, donors, and community members gathered at F8 Nightclub and Bar to dance the night away to lively music from the band Raw Honey and to beats by OTTP-SF’s very own DJ Sean Cochrun. Snacks were provided by Whole Foods, Azucar Lounge, Work of Art Catering, B Street and Vine, and Extreme Pizza. Bidding wars abounded as a silent auction – with more than 50 incredible items – drew to an end during the event, and many laughs were had in the photobooth provided by Night Owl. A fun night was had by all, and the event was a success in raising funds for the year!
