About

Overview

Variety is dedicated to delivering life-enriching services and needed funds that build better futures for the children of Northern California.

We have proudly served Northern California since 1947 and have evolved into a leader of programs to support the needs of disabled, critically ill and disadvantaged children without proper access or coverage by insurance, hospital services or government agencies.

Today we are very special organization lead by an enthusiastic group of business and community leaders who donate time, resources and energy to positively impact the lives of children in need across our communities. From our headquarters in San Francisco we support thousands of children each year together with our partner agencies, community sponsors and well-minded/caring donors.

Since 1980 we have been operators of a private screening room and lounge space serving the movie industry and public events which generates additional funding for our programs. We also showcase this private theater to the benefit our donor members with selected movie screenings, author readings, and art receptions as our way of saying Thank You to the caring donors of Variety!

We make every effort to ensure fiscal responsibility and effective use of our funding. We perform administration duties as a function of our volunteer-based and dedicated board of directors and undergo yearly a third-party audit. Of course, we can't do everything on our own. We proudly work in partnership with many hard working childrens agencies throughout the Bay Area.

Variety Childrens Charity of Northern California is a registered non-profit charitable organization (Federal Tax ID: 94-1075155). All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
