About | Bay Area Democracy Funders

Founded in 2012, the Bay Area Democracy Funders (BADF) is a network of experts, funders and friends who identify and amplify the most critical challenges to democracy and identify philanthropic opportunities for foundations and individual donors to support a more functional and representative democracy. BADF is comprised of Bay Area funders, senior advisors, trustees and program officers with deep experience funding groups that bolster democratic norms and reforms through individual grantmaking, private and community foundations and donor-advised funds.

In partnership with NCG, BADF engages a broad group of Bay Area funders and advocates to the sector and leverages new resources to the democracy field through regular programs and meetings.
