Cultivating Community Because We Are More Powerful Together

Our team of experts cultivates community with nonprofits, cutting-edge leaders, partners, and our supporters at large because we know together, we can create a Bay Area where everyone prospers. We approach it with gratitude, holding ourselves accountable to our community, and putting equity at the center because background and identity should never pre-determine opportunity.

Our Mission

We live in a region that believes in possibility. But, we also live in a region that has become impossible for everyone to call home. We build community to advance the most promising poverty-fighting solutions so one day everyone has an opportunity to prosper in the Bay Area.

Diversity, Equity + Inclusion

To do our work, we must acknowledge and address the connection between race and poverty. We continually strive to integrate diversity, equity, and inclusion into every aspect of our strategy.

Meet Our Team

Our passionate team is made of our staff, Board of Directors, and Leadership Council members. Together, we cultivate community to support our grantees building a Bay Area that’s full of possibility for all.


Why We Invest

It’s critical we all do our part to fight poverty in this amazing city. We’ve chosen Tipping Point as our way to help because of its track record helping people stay out of poverty in durable, compassionate ways. No organization has raised more money or had the same impact across the Bay over the last 20 years.
