New Foundation Support for Planned Parenthood Shasta Pacific
In September 2010, PPSD expanded its service area to include San Francisco, Marin, Sonoma, and Mendocino Counties. We are working quickly to open new health centers in these counties and look forward to serving the many and diverse communities in each region. A project of this magnitude has required immediate funding assistance from the local philanthropic community. PPSP is grateful to the following foundations for their grants to support our Service Area Expansion Project:
The David B. Gold Foundation ($200,000)
The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation ($200,000)
Richard and Rhoda Goldman Fund ($185,000)
The Mary Wohlford Foundation ($50,000)
The Endurance Fund ($10,000)
In addition to these generous grants, we are very grateful to The David B. Gold Foundation, which recently awarded PPSP $100,000 to support the construction of our Napa Solano Regional Health and Training Center.
Thank you to Napa Valley Vintners, the non-profit trade association of Napa Valley's wine industry, which has awarded PPSP two grants to support our work in Napa County: $65,000 to support medical services and $40,000 to support education programming.
Finally, we are pleased to announce that we have received renewed funding from the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Fund for Community Benefit at the East Bay Community Foundation, which has awarded PPSP $75,000 to support our Increasing HIV Testing for At-Risk Populations Project. With the support of Kaiser Permanente, PPSP is increasing HIV Testing for African American and Latino clients ages 15-24 at seven of our health centers.
