Founded in 1948, the San Francisco Foundation is one of the nation’s largest community foundations — a grantmaking public charity dedicated to improving life within a specific local region. Our mission is to mobilize resources and act as a catalyst for change to build strong communities, foster civic leadership, and promote philanthropy in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Together with community leaders, nonprofits, and donors, we are committed to advancing racial equity and economic inclusion to ensure that everyone in the Bay Area has a chance to get a good job, live in a safe and affordable home, and have a strong political voice.
OUR EQUITY AGENDA
Together with community leaders, nonprofits, and donors, we are committed to an agenda that advances racial equity and economic inclusion for everyone in the Bay Area. We want all people in the Bay Area to be economically secure, rooted in vibrant communities, and civically engaged.
Our strategic focus of this agenda is on a just and equitable recovery and on leading the way for our communities, partners, and staff to engage in radical reimagining and transformative solidarity to create a better reality for all. With a community-driven vision for a more equitable and just Bay Area, we can continue to dismantle the old systems and rebuild them anew.
We know this will be a continuous learning experience, but one with a very clear goal — to make the Bay Area a place that offers true opportunity for everybody.
