Online Survey: We need YOUR input to strengthen the Children’s Amendment!
The Children’s Amendment was passed for the first time in 1991 by the voters of San Francisco, creating a landmark set-aside fund for children, youth and their families in the city! It was reauthorized by SF voters in 2000, and currently sets aside approximately 3% of the city’s property taxes in the “Children’s Fund” (currently totaling around $50 million, housed within the Department of Children, Youth and their Families), as well as creating a “baseline” of funding across all city departments.
The Children’s Funding Community Coalition has been meeting since summer 2012, and has engaged over 100 community groups in discussions about how to strengthen the Children’s Amendment, this incredible resource for the city’s children, youth and families.
In order to finalize our recommendations about how to improve the Children’s Amendment, we’d like your input. Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey! Our deadline is Tuesday, November 19th, at 5pm. Thank you!NOV 13, 2013
