SF nonprofit linked to alleged theft will close

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A San Francisco nonprofit linked to the prosecution of six school district employees for grand theft and other charges will shut down by the end of the year.

Officials with the San Francisco School Alliance said Friday its last day of operation will be Dec. 1.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports ( ) the governing board voted this week to dissolve the organization.

It was one of three nonprofits allegedly used by the six employees in a scheme to embezzle government money that was supposed to be used for after-school and health programs.

Prosecutors say the six allegedly diverted $250,000 over 10 years for their personal use. Trial dates have not been set.

The Alliance was established in 2005 to generate financial and community support for the school district.
