Our Approach

We believe that change happens through people, organizations, neighborhoods, and policy. Strong community relationships and local expertise are at the very core of our approach. We bring together the sharpest minds, with on-the-ground insights and expertise, to develop solutions to the biggest challenges facing Bay Area residents.

We partner for the long run, because we know that lasting change happens through long-term investment in the community that provides the stability to explore new approaches.

This year, we prioritized investment in these key areas:

  • - Financial stability
  • - Full-service community schools
  • - Sustainable communities
  • - Preventative care
  • - Cultural hubs
  • - Affordable housing
