San Francisco ICO depends on both equipment (in-kind) and monetary donations in order to operate our program

Monetary donation

Outing costs typically include transportation, park entry fees, food, and supplies. We also own and maintain backpacking gear for 60 people in two locations. You can make a tax-deductible financial contribution to San Francisco ICO directly through the National Sierra Club Foundation website. It's a fast, safe and simple way to help our mission. Thank you for remembering ICO and the people we serve.

If you have any questions, please contact our Treasurer by email.

Equipment (in-kind) donation

We gladly accept outdoor gear (e.g., backpacks, sleeping bags, etc.) and clothing (especially in smaller sizes) for our participants, so long as they are clean, in  good condition and don’t need repair. We feel it is important that our participants have the same kind of quality, reliable gear that you would use. For equipment donations, please email our equipment coordinator with a full description of your items.
