About Bernal Bucks
Bernal Bucks is an initiative driven exclusively by residents of Bernal Heights. They are dedicated to strengthening the economic livelihood of our community. Originally with the “Bernal” tags on Dollar bills, with Bernal Gift Certificates, and now with the Bernal Card, the initiative provides incentives and systems to keep our money local. The buck shops here.
