FOGG for 8 years has stood between the developers and the destruction of our community recreation center (GGTSC).  We thank again our volunteers and the hundreds of financial contributors who have kept us going for all these years.

We need your financial contributions. Your tax deductible donations have made this all possible and are keeping the present developer Simon Snellgrove (developer #4) from succeeding.

Your donations keep both our land use attorney Sue Hestor and our consultant Brad Paul with us.  Together with our FOGG volunteers we have formulated a successful plan, now expanded with the AND Community Vision Plan to transform the entire northeast waterfront of San Francisco and preserve our open recreational space.  The AND Plan balances revenue generating, open space and active recreation uses across all seawall lots, including Seawall Lot 351, and is both financially and politically feasible.  It is a great opportunity for our City.

We are confident in our efforts but without continued financial support from you it could become very difficult to move ahead.

You can make a real difference NOW by sending in your tax deductible donation to Friends of Golden Gateway, P.O. Box 2294, San Francisco, CA 94126.  Please make your checks out to PDF/FOGG, and on the memo line write “tax deductible donation”.

Or you can donate online by clicking on the ‘Donations to FOGG’ link on this website.

With your financial support we could end our many years of effort to preserve the community recreational center (GGTSC) in a positive and final manner for the thousands who care about the health and well-being of our families, youth and seniors.
