One of Rebecca White’s favorite charitable institutions, GLIDE Foundation San Francisco has been around since the 1920s- beginning with Methodist philanthropist Lizzie Glide purchasing a parcel of land at the intersection of Ellis and Taylor Streets in San Francisco.
The construction of what is known as GLIDE Memorial United Methodist Church was completed two years later. It is affiliated with the United Methodist Church. Since then, its contributions to the community have been recognized by renowned figures such as Maya Angelou, Oprah Winfrey, and Bill Clinton, among many.
