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 invest in change through education because every child deserves every opportunity to reach his or her potential. When schools are a center of community, we transform the Bay Area’s potential in economy, health and a thriving community.
