Chronicle Season of Sharing Fund

The Chronicle Season of Sharing Fund provides temporary assistance to help people living in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma counties.
The Fund offers grants to help families in crisis so they can pay for housing and emergency needs. Grant monies from the Fund can help families in any number of ways, such as paying the rent so they can stay in their home, covering a security deposit so they can transition out of a homeless shelter, or buying a wheelchair or other essential medical equipment that they couldn’t otherwise afford. Grants are paid directly to the supplier of services. For example, if rental assistance has been approved, the check is written out to the landlord.
