Located on Fulton Street between Gough and Franklin, the new Don Fisher Clubhouse opened its doors on January 28, 2015. This Club replaced the famous Ernest Ingold Clubhouse which served the Haight, Lower Haight, Fillmore, and Hayes Valley communities for 62 years. In its first year, the Don Fisher Clubhouse served 193 youth per day and during its first summer, specifically, averaged 324 youth per day.
The Clubhouse facility features a competition-size swimming pool, learning center, performing arts studio, music studio, high school services center, middle school room, design-build studio, and high-school-size gymnasium, and is approximately 30,000 square feet. The Club is home to the SF Rebels Basketball program, the BGCSF Swim Academy, Notes4Notes (a music program) and Nitty Dupree/Talent All-Stars Studio of Dance.
The building honors the legacy of two of the strongest supporters and volunteers in Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco’s history. The Clubhouse is named after the late Don Fisher, who co-founded Gap Inc. and served the Club’s Board of Governors for 46 years. The organization’s main office is located on the top two floors and is named in honor of the late Dr. John N. Callander, a beloved San Francisco physician who served on the Club’s Board of Governors for 50 years.
