Initiatives and Collaborative Work

East Bay Foundation on Aging (EBFA)

The East Bay Foundation on Aging (EBFA), a supporting organization at The San Francisco Foundation, is a grantmaking partner committed to serving seniors in Oakland through grants to nonprofit organizations. It was founded with the proceeds from the sale of the historic Matilda Brown Home for Elderly Women in Oakland in 2009. Since then, its goal has been to improve and maintain the physical and emotional health of older adults by supporting culturally competent programs that promote independence and provide services to seniors living in Oakland. Read more.

Community Health Innovation Fund

The Community Health Innovation Fund is a five year funding initiative totaling $7,998,000 that invests in San Francisco’s community clinics and other healthcare safety net providers to assure access to culturally competent, quality, and affordable healthcare. In its first year, Community Health Innovation Fund will make grants to support community clinic capacity to serve patients who are newly eligible for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). In addition, the Fund will support other community-based health, behavioral health, and social services with a focus on residents of San Francisco’s low-income and high health disparity neighborhoods. The Community Health Innovation Fund is a partnership between The San Francisco Foundation, the San Francisco Department of Public Health, and the California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC), as the result of a development agreement negotiated between the City and CPMC.
