The Hearts in San Francisco project debuted in 2004. 131 heart sculptures, created by local Bay Area artists, were placed on display throughout San Francisco for the public to enjoy. After three months, they were auctioned by the Foundation in support of Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center.
The Foundation raised nearly 3 million dollars for ZSFG in that first year. Today, we carry on this tradition by commissioning and auctioning a new set of hearts each year at our annual gala. The funds raised support those delivering on the promise of accessible and equitable health care for all in our city.
