Join us on September 7th and 8th for DST’s 2nd Annual “Downtown Drop Down”, an urban adventure fundraiser that challenges you to take your support to new heights (236 feet!). DST’s fundraising goal this year is $300,000!



What is Downtown Drop Down?

Downtown Drop Down is an urban adventure fundraiser hosted by Adobe on September 7 and 8, 2018, that challenges you to take your support to new heights for Downtown Streets Team, a nonprofit dedicated to ending homelessness and restoring hope through the dignity of work.

This exciting event provides the unique opportunity for individuals or groups to raise funds in exchange to rappel from the top of the Adobe Headquarters in Downtown San Jose - 16 stories! No climbing or rappelling experience necessary, just enough courage to go over the edge.

How does it work?

Downtown Drop Down is similar to a walk-a-thon, but it’s a ‘Rappel-a-thon’:

  • Step 1: Register to Rappel
    Purchase your $200 ticket to become a rappeler.
  • Step 2: Create your peer-to-peer fundraising page
    We'll provide fundraising ideas and tips, sample letters and the fundraising platform. You provide your creativity and reach out to your network.
  • Step 3: Start fundraising!
    You have your network of friends, family, coworkers and neighbors who are just waiting for you to ask them to support you on your adventure. We know adventure and ending homelessness are important to you. We're cheering you on!
