Building Local Movements for Change
A new follow-up report captures lessons from a funder collaborative working to boost civic participation in diverse communities.
Transformational change requires collaboration, steadfastness, and a willingness to challenge the status quo. Together with our partners in the Bay Area and around the country, we work to advance rights and create opportunities for all people.
We invest in five key areas of focus:
Supporting equal opportunities for immigrants to become active citizens and achieve the American dream.
Advancing the cause of full equality for gay and lesbian people, with a focus on equal marriage rights.
Closing the opportunity gaps in San Francisco’s public schools to even the odds and improve life chances for all students.
Building the skills and abilities of organization and movement leaders so they can advance the cause of social change.
Strengthening the Bay Area as a community, with spaces and institutions that bring people together and enrich lives.
