Yerba Buena Community Benefit District

We’re a nonprofit dedicated to improving the Yerba Buena neighborhood in downtown San Francisco — the City’s cultural district. Our Clean Team, Community Guides and Bike Patrol Officers help to keep our public spaces clean, welcoming and safe. We promote district businesses and attractions, hold events, and enhance public spaces. We work with our volunteer Board of Directors and committees and as partners with residents, world-class museums, Moscone Convention Center, hotels, and educational institutions to enhance our neighborhood.

Seeking Branding and Design Help

The Yerba Buena Community Benefit District is seeking help to tell the story of the Yerba Buena neighborhood.
As San Francisco emerges from the pandemic and continues to find new ways to identify itself, so too is the Yerba Buena neighborhood. Because we’re the hub of museums with a strong backbone of Filipino heritage, centered around the bustling core of the Yerba Buena Gardens and the Moscone Convention Center, imagination and culture are our guiding lights. We’re seeking bold new ideas to create a story to radiate all we have to offer.
