For over 50 years, GLIDE has stood with the most vulnerable, including the poor and marginalized, those challenged by illness, homelessness, hunger, discrimination and exclusion. GLIDE remains a place for all in need to find a warm meal, access to healthcare and shelter, childcare and family services, and someone to advocate for them. GLIDE serves roughly 750,000 free meals a year.
“GLIDE really takes people who have hit rock bottom and helps bring them back, said Warren Buffett . “They've been doing it for decades. If I can help out by raising some money for them, then I enjoy doing it.”
“We are grateful to Warren Buffett and eBay for enabling us to reach thousands with our programs and support,” said GLIDE’s Co-Founder Reverend Cecil Williams .
“Warren Buffett’s generosity provides direct support to help the disenfranchised transform their lives. It allows GLIDE to remain a driving force for racial and economic equity in San Francisco and beyond,” said GLIDE President and CEO Karen Hanrahan .
“eBay is honored to continue our partnership with GLIDE for this iconic auction and help in its mission of alleviating the suffering of those under the debilitating grasp of poverty,” said eBay’s President and CEO Devin Wenig . “eBay’s community embodies the steadfast dedication to our goal of raising a billion dollars for charities by 2020.”
Over the past 18 years, the winning bids have ranged from $25,000 (prior to eBay’s involvement) to $3,456,789. Funds raised go directly to support GLIDE’s programs. eBay will host the auction for the 16th year in a row.
