National Aids Memorial Grove
The National AIDS Memorial Grove, located in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, is a dedicated space in the national landscape where millions of Americans touched directly or indirectly by AIDS can gather to heal, remember and hope. Its mission is to provide, in perpetuity, a place of remembrance so that the lives of people who died from AIDS are not forgotten and the story of the AIDS pandemic is known by future generations.
Robert Holgate has been a donor to the AIDS Memorial Grove for many years.
