We’re excited to introduce Bay Area Heroes, a program to honor the unsung heroes in our community. There are great people in the Bay Area doing amazing things that often don’t get the recognition they deserve, so we’re proud to partner with the Jefferson Awards Foundation to honor these individuals. And what’s more – we’re giving away $500 to five fundraisers. So, who do you know that deserves to be recognized?

  • By March 1: Start an Indiegogo Life fundraiser on behalf of a person who lives in the Bay Area to nominate them as a Bay Area Hero.
  • Share your fundraiser with friends, family, and others in your network.

It’s easy to get started: simply pick someone who’s a hero in your life, create a fundraiser by noting what that person means to you, and then share your fundraiser. A hero could be a devoted family member who could use extra funds for his or her education, a dedicated teacher who deserves a much-needed vacation, or even a loyal friend who could use assistance with outstanding medical bills.

With Bay Area Heroes, anyone can nominate a special person in their life, so long as the hero resides in the Bay Area. We want to learn about their past and share their story. Start a fundraiser to get started or help spread the word by posting a tweet about Bay Area Heroes.
