Donations & Sponsorships
Below is a partial list of grants made by the Levinson Foundation over the years.
Cancer Hope Foundation
The Levinson Foundation made a $7,000 grant to the Cancer Hope Foundation. The Cancer Hope Foundation works to enhance the lives of people affected by cancer. The Cancer Hope Foundation’s Camp Keepsake is a free camp retreat for cancer patients and survivors and their friends and families. This organization was formed after the founder, Christopher Roos’ close friend passed away from cancer. Although she was surrounded by loved ones during her last days, she was incoherent. Roos founded the Cancer Hope Foundation in hopes of helping other cancer patients enjoy fun and exciting moments with loved ones while still healthy enough to do so. The Levinson Foundation’s grant will aid the Cancer Hope Foundation in developing a summer camp for children.
Coalition on Homelessness (COH)
The Levinson Foundation donated $7,500 to the Coalition on Homelessness, San Francisco (COH). The COH is a social justice promoter that initiates program and policy changes to aid the impoverished.

The COH works to defend homeless and low-income individuals from attacks on their rights while advocating for permanent solutions to homelessness. This donation will support COH’s Outreach Project.
