Beneficiaries and Volunteers


In 2014 the Castro Street Fair raised over $76,000 for the local community.



We are now accepting applications from organizations interested in becoming a beneficiary of the 2015 Castro Street Fair.

Deadline: Your request for consideration must be received by May 31, 2015. 

To be considered your organization must be a valid 501(c)3 and provide support and services to the local San Francisco community. A letter of interest should be emailed to along with the following information:

  1. One-page PDF Letter with information about your group, including updated full contact information for your volunteer coordinator, how it contributes to the community and how a donation might be used to further aid the work of your organization. Please include a phone number and a website so we can post your link on the Castro Street Fair website.
  2. A rough estimate of how many volunteers you will be able to provide on the day of the event.
  3. A copy of your current documentation of 501(c)3 (non-profit) status. Everyone must submit this regardless of past applications. Your application will not be considered complete without this form.

Proceeds from the Castro Street Fair are shared with our beneficiaries. Benefiting organizations provide volunteers to assist with various Fair operations – primarily collecting donations at our entry gates. An organization’s share of the proceeds is based on the number of volunteer hours worked. Volunteers work in shifts from 3 AM to 7 PM on the day of the Fair, which is always the first Sunday in October.
