Gratitude in Action

San Francisco and Marin Intergroup is grateful for the generous contributions it received during Gratitude Month in November. If your group participated in Gratitude Month, please encourage your treasurers to send in those contributions before December 31. This helps inform Intergroup’s 2023 budget. 

In November Intergroup had 38 people become Faithful Fivers, one of the biggest increases in recent years! It was all due to getting the word out about this simple way to automate contributions to Intergroup. We need just seven more Faithful Fivers to reach our goal of 350 Faithful Fivers by the end of the year. Become a Faithful Fiver by contributing $5+ every month. Sign up at or call 415-674-1820.
