Announcing the End-of-Year Fund Drive!Your Austin Galano Club needs your support! As we come to the end of another year, it is time for our annual giving campaign. The Austin Galano Club is a non-profit corporation whose purpose is to provide a safe, affordable, comfortable place for our recovery community to gather, whether for 12-step meetings or for social purposes.
Over the years your generosity has provided operational support for our facility, including utilities, facility maintenance and repair, and has helped keep group rents affordable regardless of the size of the group. Since we opened, our Galano community has grown to more than 50 meetings-per-week, with a huge variety of 12-step fellowships represented. More than 800 people every week attend meetings, join friends, find support and enjoy a loving LGBTQIA+ friendly environment at the club.
On average, 94% of our expenses are comprised of rent, insurance, utilities, and other expenses necessary to keep the doors open. We rely on your donations to fund 10-15% of our operating budget* each year. Please consider helping us meet that target again this year.
Give Before the End of the Year and Your Gift Will More Than Double!A group of anonymous members of the Galano community have pledged to match your contributions dollar-for-dollar up to $15,000 if we hit our goal by December 31! That means $30,000 or more to preserve and continue Galano’s legacy in 2020.
Will you help us reach our goal of $15,000 for Galano’s 2019 End-of-Year Giving Campaign? Your donation is tax deductible.
