East Bay Foundation on Aging
The East Bay Foundation on Aging (EBFA), a supporting organization at The San Francisco Foundation, is a grantmaking partner committed to improving the lives of underserved seniors in Oakland. Founded in 2009 with the proceeds from the sale of the historic Matilda Brown Home for Elderly Women in Oakland, the East Bay Foundation on Aging seeks to improve and maintain the physical and emotional health of vulnerable older adults. Northern California’s oldest nonprofit, The Ladies’ Home Society of Oakland ran the Matilda Brown Home from 1872 to 2007. Due to financial, infrastructure, and emerging issues related to the changing demographics and needs of seniors, the Society sold the facility and created a grantmaking entity that will continue the legacy of service to seniors.
