ABOUT ALL STARS HELPING KIDS

All Stars Helping Kids is dedicated to improving the lives of marginalized youth in the Bay Area. Founded in 1989, All Stars Helping Kids is a San Francisco Bay Area-based foundation that invests in emerging nonprofits with innovative solutions that move youth from poverty to prosperity. Each year, All Stars selects a cohort of Bay Area nonprofits to participate in a three-year intensive program that is designed to help build the organizational capacity, financial sustainability and community impact of those organizations working to disrupt the cycle of poverty for Bay Area youth.

All Stars is not a typical grant making organization. We partner closely with each of the organizations in our portfolio and provide trainings, check-ins, networking opportunities, resources and 1-on-1 coaching throughout the year. We use a collaborative approach to engage our staff, grantees, alumni, and partners. We firmly believe that once you are part of the All Stars team, you’re always part of the All Stars team.

One of our core values is our commitment to diversity and we strive for a diverse and culturally competent team. To learn more, visit www.allstarshelpingkids.org.
