So many people give so very generously to make St. Dominic's one of the most vibrant and vigorous parishes in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Your support allows St. Dominic's to persevere in the Gospel mission of reaching out to others.
Listed below are some of the directed giving opportunities available, and the ways by which you can give.

Direct Your Gift
When you give to St. Dominic's, you can specify whether your gifts are for the parish's general operating needs or for particular programs.
General Operations: Your gift enables St. Dominic's to fulfill its vision to be a campus of lifelong faith formation and a hub of service to the San Francisco community. Gifts for general operations support our many parish ministries, including liturgies, adult and youth formation programs, and outreach activities, and help the parish enhance and expand these important ministries.
Archbishop's Annual Appeal: Through your support of the Archbishop's Annual Appeal, St. Dominic’s joins with other local parishes in the Archdiocese of San Francisco to aid the work of the Church and to minister to those most in need. Ministries and programs funded by the Appeal, many of which are well beyond the scope of what any single parish could do alone, provide help for the homeless and the hungry, scholarships for less advantaged children, chaplains in hospitals, assistance for the elderly, outreach to youth, young adults, and returning Catholics, and much more.
Church Maintenance (Maintaining God's House): Your gift will help protect and insure this architectural gem, which serves as the heart and soul of the parish community, will endure for generations to come.
Community Service: St. Dominic's has served thousands of people in need, lightening the burdens each carries, especially in times of spiritual and material hardship. The parish provides assistance with rent, utilities, food, and clothing, and offers a special outreach program during the holidays.
Music Ministry: St. Dominic’s is recognized for its innovative worship services and liturgical music program, which includes a regular schedule of concerts and other artistic presentations.
