We welcome letters of inquiry at any time.
The Foundation will not support organizations that discriminate against a person or group on the basis of age, political affiliation, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation or religious belief. All potential grantees must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization or a public entity with a board or advisory group that is reflective of the population or community being served.
The Foundation generally does not fund films, videos, conferences, seminar, capital, scholarships, individuals, research, or special or fundraising events.
Priority is given to organizations in the nine counties of the San Francisco Bay Area. We occasionally consider projects beyond this region that affect us, as well as unique projects that offer lessons or benefits for the Bay Area.
