sf.citi 2018: A YEAR IN COLLABORATION
2018 was a big year for sf.citi, and we’re excited to share what we’ve accomplished in our new Annual Report.
Before we dive into 2019, let’s reminisce on all of the good times we had in 2018. Two elections. Double the sf.citi events. A growing team and membership base. And oh so much more. One theme tying each of our milestones together is collaboration. But don’t take our word for it – see for yourself in the report below!
A few sf.citi highlights from 2018:
- sf.citi facilitated 13 Lunch and Learn discussions—each hosted at a different sf.citi member company—connecting our members with 18 local and state candidates and officials.
- sf.citi organized San Francisco’s first 9/11 Day of Action, as well as an industry-wide holiday-themed day of giving (more details below). These took place in addition to our regular community outreach programs: Circle the Schools and Future Grads.
- sf.citi hosted six large-scale events attended by well over 1000 people, many of whom were newcomers to sf.citi events.

TECH SUPPORTS SENIORS IN THE TENDERLOIN AT ONE CITY GIVES
San Francisco tech workers came together to support seniors in the Tenderloin at the inaugural One City Gives, an industry-wide holiday day of action hosted by sf.citi and Meals on Wheels San Francisco.
On December 13th, nearly 150 employees from the city’s leading tech companies turned out to give back to the local community. They gathered at Onedome San Francisco, where they wrapped gifts and listened to supportive remarks from Assemblymember David Chiu, District 6 Supervisor-Elect Matt Haney, Affirm CEO Max Levchin, Meals on Wheels San Francisco Board Member José Allen, and sf.citi Executive Director Jennifer Stojkovic.
The day’s volunteers then set out in small groups to deliver holiday gifts to more than 700 seniors in the Tenderloin. Aside from spreading some much-needed holiday cheer, these visits feed into Meals on Wheels San Francisco’s other services, which include providing daily meals and performing safety checks that reduce the risks associated with loneliness, depression, and falls. A big thank you to all who participated!
We would also like to thank our sponsors who helped make this holiday day of action a reality: AdRoll, EAT Club, LinkedIn, Okta, Waymo, and our host venue, Onedome San Francisco.
NEW FACES ON THE SF BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
In January 2019, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors will inaugurate six (relatively) new members, and you can learn all about them in the latest sf.citi blog.
sf.citi regularly connects our members with leaders in San Francisco politics. That’s why we thought it fitting to take a look closer look at the newest faces on the Board. Did you know, for example, that one Supervisor hails from Utah or that another taught students in the juvenile justice system before embarking on his political career? All this and more in our blog below.
As we prepare for the year ahead, sf.citi looks forward to collaborating with all members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, both seasoned and newly-sworn in.
LOOKING BACK BEFORE MOVING FORWARD
On December 12, sf.citi joined many San Franciscans in remembering the great Mayor Ed Lee on the one-year anniversary of his passing. Our first Chinese-American mayor, Mayor Lee was one of San Francisco’s most prolific civil rights champions who dedicated his life to bettering our city for all who call it home. We were fortunate to work with Mayor Lee on numerous initiatives and programs throughout the years, including the launch of our Circle the Schools program.
DID YOU KNOW?
Building off the momentum from yesterday’s One City Gives event, made possible by the outstanding participation from sf.citi members, let’s keep on giving!
