On October 15, 2015 Full Circle Fund hosted over 300 guests at City Hall for our R15E Gala, celebrating 15 Years of Partnering for Good. We were inspired to see both new and long-time supporters of our work during the Impact Gallery Reception, sponsored by Pacific Gas and Electric Company, where we highlighted the organizations, individuals and events that have shaped Full Circle Fund's model of engaged philanthropy over the years. The Warriors Championship Trophy provided a celebratory backdrop for introducing Full Circle Fund's new CEO, Steve McCoy-Thompson, and for spotlighting leaders from Beyond 12, Elefint Designs and The San Francisco Foundation.
Gala Co-Chairs, Vivian Wu and Josh Becker, lead us into our 15-Year R15E Gala, where we honored five leaders and organizations that are advancing positive social impact in our community. In addition to celebrating these leaders of change, we also shared two additional milestones in our history - the release of our 15-Year Impact Study and our latest video, showcasing personal stories from our community of Members and Grant Partners.
With the incredible support of our Sponsors, Host Committee and guests, we raised nearly $400,000, to further accelerate our impact in our key issue areas of Education, Economic Opportunity, Environment & Energy, and Health. This was a remarkable moment for Full Circle Fund and we could not have done it without the support of our dedicated community of engaged philanthropists.
