$10,000 GIFT FROM THE ELIZABETH TAYLOR AIDS FOUNDATION AND MACY’S

San Francisco, CA –San Francisco General Hospital Foundation has been awarded a grant for $10,000 from The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF) in partnership with Macy’s. The grant will support the expansion of HIVE’s PRO Men (Positive Reproductive Outcomes for HIV+ Men) program. The program provides counseling, referrals and group sessions that address men living with HIV and their reproductive health intentions. Through their involvement with PRO Men, clients living with HIV can share their desires, hopes and fears in a peer-to-peer environment.

“The work that HIVE does to help people affected by HIV/AIDS is impressive, and very much aligned with Elizabeth Taylor’s passionate commitment to the cause,” said Joel Goldman, Managing Director of The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. “ETAF and our partners at Macy’s are thrilled to present HIVE with these funds to help further our shared mission.”

“With funding from The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation and Macy’s, the PRO Men program offers non-judgmental clinical care in the primary HIV setting. HIVE’s strong partnership with the Ward 86 HIV clinic means men living with HIV who desire a family can learn about reducing the risk of HIV transmission and connecting their partners with care. There have been zero San Francisco babies born with HIV since 2004,” applauds HIVE director Shannon Weber on this gift.

Through their Cause Marketing Program, Macy’s recognizes their responsibility to the community and their concern for the needs of their neighbors. They are proud to partner with ETAF and have contributed to this grant.
