Help us continue to provide services to over 2,000 clients a year by donating today. GAAP is a private 501(c)3 nonprofit that receives no funds from the government, but relies on the support of its donors to provide essential services and support for low-income individuals.

The lives of most GAAP clients are characterized by poverty, abuse, discrimination, and other conditions that undermine personal and family stability. Many lack basic human needs, such as affordable housing, food, health care, and personal safety. Each year GAAP touches the lives of thousands of individuals struggling to overcome these obstacles. We rely on the generosity of our donors to meet the critical needs of underrepresented people in our community.

GAAP gratefully accepts donations of any size, and 100% of your donation is tax-deductible. Your donation to GAAP makes a real impact. For example:

  • $200 helps 1000 clients receive GAAP’s much-needed legal and support services
  • $100 supports advocacy for one client at a fair hearing to ensure they continue receiving the benefits they need
  • $30 ensures that GAAP can provide clients with essential items, such as socks, shampoo, and deodorant
  • $4 is the average cost to help one client who visits our drop-in clinic

In addition to monetary contributions, donations of goods such as blankets and clothes, particularly coats, sweaters, and socks, are always welcome. Donate online today, or contact Gary Lewis at or call (415) 928-8191.


GAAP hosts events throughout the year that offer a chance for our various friends in the community, current advocates, and alumni to get together and have a great time.
