Help Support The Marin Alano Club

The Marin Alano Club was founded in 1965 and moved to its present location, 1360 Lincoln Avenue, in 1974. The Alano Club, a non-profit charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, provides meeting space for Alcoholic Anonymous and other 12 step support group meetings. There are over 50 AA and other 12 step meetings a week at the Marin Alano Club attended by 1,300 people seeking 12 step recovery and support.

The Alano Club receives revenue from the meetings, member dues and its snack bar. The facility has always financed repairs and refurbishments through volunteer work, fund raising events, private gifts and regular income streams, however, it has some fairly major and much needed infrastructure repairs. These include a new foundation to replace the substandard brick foundation, new double insulated windows, extensive drainage work on the north side to repair years of consistent flooding to the basement, new siding on the south side, new tar and gravel roof on the rear deck, a new patio that will be able to better accommodate fund raising events and BBQs, painting of the entire building, replacing rear deck stairs and landing. These upgrades and repairs also include some interior and exterior ADA Accessibility requirements.
