Can you "Step It Up"?


Dear friends of the Castro Country Club,

These are exciting times for the Country Club community, with lots of great events coming up and so many people celebrating recovery milestones with watches and barbeques. We hope you will check them out and bring a newcomer!

Speaking of recovery milestones, we just celebrated one year since reopening the Country Club after an extensive remodel, made possible with impressive support from community members and volunteers like you. And since then, things have just continued to get better. We're so glad we joined together to make this investment in our recovery home, ensuring that we have a welcoming and safe place for the LGBT recovery community.


Still, to keep the doors open, the Country Club is reliant on the steadfast support of our monthly recurring donors, who contribute $10 or more through automatic online deductions. 

"If you already contribute, why not ask a

friend to 'Step It Up,' too?"


Currently, of the thousands of people who use the Club each month, we have 61 active monthly supporters, with 27 of these joining since the beginning of the year. Just in the last month, we gratefully welcomed new monthly supporters David D, David H, Michael L, Benjamin S, Steve R, Daniel S, Georgina H, Al S, Gregg S, Chayne L, Veronica R, Kent B and another Anonymous donor. Thank you, all!


If each of our recurring donors could recruit just one more supporter, we would meet our monthly goal of $5,000 in donations, which would just about cover our rent! If you already contribute, why not ask a friend to "Step It Up," too?


Monthly donor levels start at just $10/month. All are acknowledged on our Gratitude Wall and we have some really nice thank you gifts for you as well. For more information, or to start your monthly recurring donation, click "Step It Up" below.


Thank you for being a part of the solution.


In service,


Terry B.
