If you are not a member yet, now is the time to join our community and receive the great benefits of membership. We are a group of people seeking truth, insight and wisdom about the issues we face as individuals and as a society. Please join! You can become a monthly sustaining member for just $10 a month.

The 36th Annual Gala—the Club’s most important fundraising event of the year.

The annual gala is the philanthropic community’s opportunity to support the Club’s civic and nonpartisan mission. We envision a vibrant, informed, and engaged citizenry where every individual has the knowledge, tools, and opportunities to contribute to a healthy and robust society.

The evening will include a celebratory and multifaceted awards ceremony and gala party at one of San Francisco’s most spectacular venues—our very own beautiful headquarters on The Embarcadero.

The evening will kick off with a VIP welcoming reception with the honorees. It will then be followed by an interactive awards ceremony with live remarks from our honorees and a musical performance. The celebration will continue with a multi-level party with live music, entertainment activities, and catering served by Paula Le Duc, with a menu inspired by local flavors and seasonal ingredients.


If you have symptoms of illness (coughing, fever, etc.), we ask that you either stay home or wear a mask. Our front desk has complimentary masks for members and guests who would like one.

The Commonwealth Club of California is a nonprofit public forum. This is your chance to support us and our mission.
