|This Summer, Nearly 20 San Francisco Museums will Offer Free Admission to Low-Income People Receiving Public Benefits
San Francisco is home to some of the world’s greatest cultural institutions—from the SFMOMA to the de Young Museum to the Academy of Science. Many families in San Francisco, however, cannot afford the admission fees to visit these and other cultural institutions, which can range from $20 to $150 for a family of four to visit.
Over the past year, The Financial Justice Project partnered with the San Francisco Human Services Agency and Mayor’s Office to streamline the application processes for low-income people to receive discounts on fines, fees and tickets that are beyond their ability to pay.
Today, in partnership with Mayor London Breed and the San Francisco Human Services Agency, we are proud to announce San Francisco Museums for All
Through the program, low-income San Francisco families who currently receive means-tested public benefits, such as Medi-Cal and CalFresh, can receive up to four free tickets to each museum when they present their benefits card and proof of San Francisco residency. More than 210,000 people – nearly one in four San Franciscans- receive one of these means-tested benefits and would be eligible.
