On November 21, 2002 The San Francisco Chronicle reported that "the Marin Community Foundation has awarded more than $60,000 in grants to 14 congregations throughout the county that are actively involved in community-building efforts. A variety of religious faiths are represented, ranging from Bridge the Gap (a partnership by Sausalito Presbyterian Church and the Marin City Church of God) to the Congregation Kol Shofar in Tiburon and the Novato-based International Association of Sufism. A grant to St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Marin City will support the reopening of the Southern Marin Food Pantry. The Zen Center at Green Gulch Farm in West Marin is using its grant to increase its outreach to prisoners and expand its environmental education programs. Members of the Novato Community of Christ will, under its grant, provide ESL classes for immigrant adults."
