TIPPING POINT FIGHTS POVERTY IN THE BAY AREA

Since 2005, Tipping Point has invested more than $260 million for housing, early childhood, education, and employment solutions in the region. Our board covers 100% of our operating costs, so every dollar donated goes where it’s needed most. Last year, we helped more than 130,000 people take steps out of poverty.

FIND + FUND + SUPPORT

We find the best non-profits in the Bay Area led by proven leaders, provide them with unrestricted funding, and deliver customized capacity-building support to help increase their impact.

CHANGE SYSTEMS

We work across sectors­­­­––government, business, non-profit­­­­––to bring effective solutions to scale through better public systems and policies.

RESPOND

We act in times of crisis, bringing together our community to support our neighbors who don’t have the resources to meet their basic needs.
