SF Assessor Offers Family Wealth Forum

Thanks to Betsy Eddy for forwarding this.

Family Wealth Forum

On Saturday, March 24th, the Office of Assessor Carmen Chu will bring back by popular demand our large-scale educational event, the Family Wealth Forum.

Often when speaking with community members, Carmen receives questions about tax savings, estate planning, and passing on a family’s most valuable asset, their home. In response, she created the Family Wealth Forum as a one-stop shop to answer those questions.  What makes the event unique is that we provide individual attention as a feature of this large educational event by offering free one-on-one counseling with estate planning and tax experts, certified financial planners, and staff from our office.  Our last Family Wealth Forum in September 2017 was a huge success, attracting close to 400 attendees from every district in San Francisco, with 96% of evaluation respondents recommending the event be held again.  The event was so successful that we plan to host it again on Saturday March 24th, from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm at Lincoln High School, 2162 24th Avenue.

We are really excited about this effort to support San Franciscans in these vital areas of asset building and planning for the future, which can so often be overlooked.  I’m emailing for a couple of reasons.

  1. I hope you will consider attending the event.  We encourage you to register in advance by visiting
  2. Please support the event by helping to spread the word to San Franciscans within your network, particularly families and seniors.  I’ve attached our event flyer, as well as included some promotional materials below.

Please feel free to give me a ring if you have any questions.  Thanks in advance for your consideration of this request and for your support of this valuable community event we are creating. We hope to see you there!

DHB Median Project Cleanups

Forwarded from Paul Paul Matalucci of the Diamond Heights Blvd. Median Project
Hello friends and supporters of the Diamond Heights Blvd. Median Project,
Our fingers and toes are crossed for rain… soon, we hope, and lots of it.
But there’s a silver lining to this dry month (albeit gossamer thin): we gain the upper hand on weed control for the year.
To keep our medians clean and sharp, please join us for one or more of the following volunteer work days:
  • Saturday, Feb 24
  • Saturday, Mar 17
  • Saturday, Mar 24
Time: 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon
Location: Meet at St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church, 101 Gold Mine Dr, Parish Hall (Lower Level)
Refreshments: Morning snacks
Lunch: We will serve a hot lunch afterward to say thank you
Note: if the rain is a drizzle to light sprinkle, we will proceed. Only heavy rain and/or thick fog will cause a cancellation.
Recommended for 12 years and older; no gardening experience required, but there will be bending and kneeling (pads and gloves will be provided). Some light hoeing, too.
If you have preferred personal gloves and tools, you are welcome to bring them.
If you’re unable to join us in person but would like to show your support, please consider making a financial contribution.


As always, thank you for your many forms of support, contribution, and encouragement.
All the best,
