The René Yañez
Legacy Fund

SOMArts is a central hub for San Francisco’s most radical and socially-conscious art and has been greatly shaped by the beloved late curator, artist, and mentor René Yañez. In 2022, SOMArts launched the René Yañez Legacy Fund, which supports two of his passions: nurturing emerging and mid-career artists, and caring for the SOMArts garden he started and lovingly tended.

To direct your donation to these efforts, you can select “Rene Yañez Legacy Fund” from the drop-down menu below, under Program Designation. All donations without a program designation will support SOMArts’ general operations.
