The San Francisco Foundation is an incubator for community investment, original ideas, and passionate leadership. Since 1948, we have been bringing together networks of philanthropists and civic leaders to support and build on the strengths of the community and make the Bay Area the best place it can be.
We are a leading agent of Bay Area philanthropy. We rank among the nation’s largest community foundations in grantmaking and assets. We cultivate a family of donors sharing a commitment to the Bay Area. Together, we give millions of dollars a year to foster strong communities, respond to local needs, and elevate public awareness.
