Thank you to all of those who voted to create the San Francisco Legacy Business Historic Preservation Fund.
The measure is historic in its own right, as San Francisco will offer a model for safeguarding intangible cultural heritage in the U.S.
Our friends in the local business community provide critical support to Heritage in various ways each year. This fall Heritage introduces a new Corporate Sponsorship program designed for maximum flexibility and convenience.
The program enables your company to bundle its support for Heritage programs and events — and receive heightened, continuous recognition — for one annual sponsorship payment.
San Francisco Heritage, working alongside the National Trust, is advocating for the City to remedy this longstanding “civic black eye” once and for all. Heritage’s nomination was prompted by the Old Mint’s deteriorating physical condition, its soon-to-be-vacant status, and the opportunity to create a financing mechanism in conjunction with major upzoning planned for the Central SoMa neighborhood.
Supervisor David Campos, working with San Francisco Heritage, the small business and nonprofit communities, neighborhood groups, and small property owners, is spearheading the effort to save the city’s iconic and longstanding Legacy Businesses.
