Become a SPUR Visionary

Imagine a Bay Area where all people have safe, affordable housing and participate meaningfully in the economy. Where diverse, inclusive communities connect seamlessly, and natural ecosystems thrive. SPUR’s Regional Strategy proposes steps to get there, but making it happen will take time — and sustained commitment from members like you.

SPUR Visionaries contribute to these goals over the long term through automatically recurring contributions on a monthly or annual basis.

As an added benefit, it's also more environmentally sustainable as you won't receive mailed renewal requests.
