Support the San Francisco Green Party by Becoming a Sustainer

The San Francisco Green Party needs donations for rent on the office, 
mailings, signs, and many other expenditures in order to wage effective political 

We are especially interested in building up our base of "sustaining members," 
those who agree to contribute a certain amount each month by credit card. By 
becoming a sustaining member you save us money and time that we can then 
devote to our political work. It is a method of donation that is perfect for a 
grassroots organization like the Green Party as it allows us to thrive off of 
many, many small and medium size donations instead of depending on a few large 

For more information, please visit the MAKE A DONATION page on the website at 

For questions about the sustaining member program contact 
treasurer at sfgreens.org

To make a one-time donation by mail please send a check made out to The San 
Francisco Green Party to:

San Francisco Green Party
1028A Howard St.
San Francisco, CA 94103
