SBS Swiss Benevolent Society
of San Francisco


The Society finances its charitable activities from annual membership contributions, corporate donations, investment income as well as from bequests and gifts.

Annual donations of minimum $30, increased voluntarily based on means, qualify for single-membership (family membership is $50) and the right to vote at the annual membership meeting, usually in February. All contributions are tax deductible (tax exemption #94-6052328).
