Greetings from Lonnie Payne

Lonnie Payne

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

I was honored at the beginning of 2020 to be invited to join the Board of Directors for the National AIDS Memorial.

The National AIDS Memorial Grove (“the Grove”) is a 10-acre living memorial in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park dedicated to lives touched by AIDS. In October 1996, through passage of legislation spearheaded by Representative Nancy Pelosi and signed by President Bill Clinton, the 'National AIDS Memorial Grove Act of 1996' designated the Grove a national memorial.

As announced on November 20, 2019 at the Library of Congress in Washington D.C., the National AIDS Memorial is now also the new permanent caretaker of the 54-ton AIDS Memorial Quilt and, as such, will continue all current Quilt programs, including year-round displays throughout the country.

We are committed to ensuring that the lives of people who died from AIDS — and those who fought for justice, provided care, and made discoveries — are never forgotten.

COVID-19 is reshaping our world. The National AIDS Memorial, AIDS Memorial Quilt, and our other programs are facing their most significant financial challenge since the early days of the AIDS crisis. Dozens of our fundraising events, Quilt displays, volunteer workdays, and other gatherings have been canceled or postponed.

We need your help. Please make a donation so that we can continue our work.

Please support our work by donating here to AIDS Walk San Francisco.

Never forget -- Always remember
