First City Club

Getting to Zero

The First City Club is a philanthropic group of supporters who are committed to making San Francisco the first U.S. city to get to zero new HIV infections, zero HIV deaths and zero HIV stigma.

Members commit to donating at least $1,000 annually to help sustain a legacy of compassion and generosity. When you join, you gain access to exclusive member events and activities that build a connection to our mission of health, wellness and social justice.


Join Us
The foundation is unafraid to take truly innovative steps toward its mission, even when controversial. I have always been struck by the inclusion of getting to ‘zero stigma’ as part of the foundation’s vision. I am proud to support this organization in any way I can.
