TSFF Overview

Since 1948, The San Francisco Foundation has been firmly committed to serving the people of our region. We are an incubator for community investment, original ideas, and passionate leadership in the Bay Area. With more than $1.4 billion in assets, The San Francisco Foundation is one of the largest community foundations in the country and working with its donors, it distributed nearly $100 million a year to nonprofit organizations last year.

The Foundation is committed to expanding opportunity and ensuring a more equitable future for all in the Bay Area. Today, the region is at a crossroads. Despite historic levels of prosperity, we are seeing widening inequality, increasing poverty, and declines in upward economic mobility. The rising tide is not lifting all boats. We need to ensure that everyone has a chance to get a good job, live in a safe and affordable home, has a strong political voice, and can live in a community that provides real access to opportunity. To achieve this, TSFF launched an ambitious strategy in 2016 to advance racial and economic equity across the Bay Area.

Throughout our history, we have been firmly committed to serving the people of our region. Our new regional agenda is a deepening of that commitment.
