SBCF Program Accomplishments through 202

REMEMBERING SEPTEMBER 9, 2010

September 9, 2020, marked the ten-year anniversary of the tragedy that struck San Bruno when a high-pressure natural gas pipeline exploded in the city’s Crestmoor neighborhood and transformed our city forever. We remember all those who suffered from the tragedy, especially Lavonne Bullis, Greg Bullis, William Bullis, James Franco, Jacqueline Greig, Janessa Greig, Jessica Morales, and Elizabeth Torres. We also honor this community that continues to come together with resiliency, teamwork, leadership, and commitment to help one another in challenging times such as these.

The City of San Bruno has created a virtual exhibit highlighting what happened the evening of September 9, 2010, the aftermath of the explosion, and the resiliency of the community. In addition to being available online, the exhibit is being shown on a public engagement kiosk, which SBCF funded with a $10,000 grant, in the Earl-Glenview Park

On December 2, 2020, the Foundation's Board of Directors approved grant awards totaling $300,000 to local community organizations through the Community Grants Fund. To fund the grants, which will support 23 community programs taking place in 2021, the Foundation is combining $200,000 of its own funds with $100,000 donated by YouTube and Google.org.

“As our local community continues to struggle in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, the San Bruno Community Foundation is proud to partner with YouTube and Google.org to invest in local organizations dedicated to addressing critical community needs and providing hope to San Bruno residents during these trying times,” said Foundation President Emily Roberts.

FOUNDATION AWARDS $157,000 TO ASSIST SAN BRUNO SMALL BUSINESSES; COVID-19 RELIEF GRANTS NOW TOTAL $757,000 TO ASSIST KEY COMPONENTS OF THE SAN BRUNO COMMUNITY

To assist key components of the San Bruno community, including schools and small businesses, negatively impacted by the pandemic, SBCF has awarded six COVID-19 relief grants totaling $757,000.

The latest grant, which the SBCF Board of Directors approved on March 3, 2021, provides a second tranche of funding of $157,000 to support the Small Business Recovery and Assistance Program run by the Bay Area Entrepreneur Center of Skyline College. 

In May 2020, the SBCF Board approved a package of three COVID-19 relief grants totaling $490,000 to assist San Bruno schools and small businesses. The grants included $240,000 to the San Bruno Education Foundation to provide all teachers in the San Bruno Park School District with new laptops to ensure that they have up-to-date digital tools necessary to adapt to online teaching methods in a new era of distance learning; $150,000 to support small businesses in San Bruno through the San Mateo County Strong Small Business Grant Program; and $100,000 to fund the creation of the San Bruno Small Business Recovery Assistance Program.

In April 2020, the Foundation provided a $10,000 grant to the City of San Bruno to help provide internet access to low-income students for distance learning.

And in September 2020, the Foundation donated $100,000 to the County of San Mateo's Child Care Relief Fund to support child care providers in San Bruno.
