Jungian psychotherapy includes befriending the drive to become conscious, respecting the tension of archetypal opposites, valuing differences, appreciating universal and unique features of symbols, and fostering ethical instincts.
The C.G. Jung Institute keeps the Northern California community engaged with Jungian contributions in all of these areas through education and clinical services.
Donations to the Institute are tax-deductible.
MOVING THE JUNG INSTITUTE
To serve its mission sustainably, the Institute is relocating to a building that is accessible to all people, including those facing mobility challenges, and that has adequate space for the sliding-scale psychotherapy clinic and the public education programs. Located at 2610 Mission Street, near 22nd Street, this building is only one block from the City-owned Mission Bartlett Garage and only two blocks from the 24th Street BART Station.
Renovations at 2610 Mission Street began in May 2020. We expect that the building will be ready for occupancy in fall 2021. For more information, please contact Administrative Director Steve Hargis-Bullen (firstname.lastname@example.org; 415-771-8055, ext. *206).

After 48 years of growth, the Institute is crowded in the current building, which does not meet contemporary standards for a building that serves the public. Zoning restrictions make it impossible to redesign or expand the current building.
- Education and supervision for therapists at all stages of training
- Psychotherapy unhurried and in-depth available to the public on a sliding-scale basis
- Lectures and seminars covering the entire range of Jungian psychology
- Resources such as the Institute’s specialized library, its Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism, and the quarterly Jung Journal: Culture & Psyche
- To be warm, welcoming, and accessible to all
- To offer privacy
- To connect, past, present, and future
- To be humble yet inspiring
- To nourish visitors through its library and rotating art exhibits
San Francisco has become more expensive even than Manhattan, not only to buy or lease commercial property, but also to undertake construction and renovation. The 98-year-old building that the Institute has bought at 2610 Mission Street needs a complete renovation because it is not yet divided into rooms and because it has no heating and air conditioning and only minimal plumbing and electricity. It also lacks the elevator required for disability access.
Here is the budget for the Institute’s relocation:
|Proceeds from sale of Gough St. building
||$ 5.2 million
|Purchase of building
||$ 5.5 million
||$ 8.6 million
||$ 1.0 million
|Furniture and furnishing
||$ 0.1 million
|Project management, etc.
||$ 0.5 million
*$10.4 million has been pledged or donated as of July 9, 2021.
You can help by making a financial contribution or a pledge payable over two years.
Arranging a planned gift (bequest) to the Institute is also helpful because it enhances the Institute’s long-term sustainability.
- Online donation
Check payable to the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco, 2040 Gough St., San Francisco, CA 94109. Please include your postal address so we can send you a thank you and tax receipt.

You may want to check with your financial advisor.) Contact Administrative Director Steve Hargis-Bullen* for stock transfer details.
- Automatic monthly credit card debit

In addition to our thanks and appreciation, you will receive invitations to donor appreciation events at the Institute or online. Generally, two events per year are specifically designed to express our thanks to donors. Donors and their guests may participate in these at no cost. Past donor appreciation events have applied insights of analytical psychology to film, painting, music, books, politics, ecology, organizations, and gender.
SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY
With its new home nearly finished, the Institute is refocused on its mission:
- providing fertile public educational programming
- offering high-quality training to new therapists in its internship program
- expanding the clinical perspective of licensed clinicians
- increasing depth-oriented psychotherapeutic services to the community at affordable rates through the James Goodrich Whitney Center for Psychotherapy
- making its library and Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism (ARAS) available to more people
- training experienced clinicians of diverse backgrounds to become Jungian analysts
To underwrite the costs of this work that are not covered by program fees, the Institute must annually raise $120,000 in donations. Please join in giving!
The Jung Institute’s marriage of people, ideas, vision, and resources is unmatched! We hope you can see the Institute’s value and will decide to invest in its future.
