Membership

photo6The Guardsmen is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization of approximately 150 successful and community-oriented Bay Area men who mobilize their talents and resources to provide life-changing experiences for at-risk youth through their programs.  Members raise $1 million to $1.5 million annually.  The profile of a Guardsmen member is between the ages of 25 and 40 and who is a Bay Area resident. Members come from diverse professional backgrounds and are respected community leaders.  At age 40, members must retire to senior status, although most “seniors” remain active in the organization.

Members are expected to make a $3,000 annual commitment to the organization and to volunteer a minimum of 40 hours per year at the Fort Mason Christmas Tree Lot. Most members volunteer additional time and financial resources to support the organization’s other events and programs.

Guardsmen enjoy a camaraderie that results in life-long friendships and helps sustain the organization’s legacy and future commitment to strengthening the Bay Area community.
