Resilient Local Community

The San Francisco Bay Area is a diverse and treasured place. The Foundation believes in the importance of a strong and resilient local community, and supports the engagement of those that live in the community.

Organizational Effectiveness

The Foundation supports projects that build the organizational effectiveness of its current grantees. Note: these funds are only available to organizations that are active Foundation grantees.


The Foundation’s journalism grants strive to strengthen and sustain journalism as an essential arm of U.S. democracy. This includes support of key organizations and leaders in investigative journalism, protection of the press, and those that elevate underrepresented voices and content in mainstream media.

CEO Fund

The Foundation’s CEO Fund includes grants outside the Foundation’s primary program areas. Grants in this portfolio include work preventing firearm violence, planning for the 2020 Census, and responding to emergencies, among other initiatives.
