San Francisco Travel Foundation

Tourism remains San Francisco’s #1 industry and we intend to keep it that way.

That’s why in May 2003, the San Francisco Travel Foundation was founded with a leadership gift from past Board of Directors chair Robert Werbe. With the vision of supporting the momentum of the hospitality industry, the Foundation’s vision is to enrich San Francisco’s youth through education and opportunity. Serving as separate, but affiliated, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the Foundation prepares future industry leaders by providing scholarships to local students enrolled in hospitality management programs at local colleges and universities, and presents visitor-industry related educational programs to the community.

The Foundation accepts tax-deductible donations from individuals, businesses, organizations, and other foundations. To make a tax-deductible contribution, contact Paul Frentsos at (415) 227-2608 or
