Are We Doing Right by the Region’s Poorest County?

Monday, September 12, 2016

One Bay Area county is far poorer and, it turns out less funded than the rest. And it’s one that probably won’t come easily to mind.

A new report shows that half of all local grant dollars go to San Francisco and less than one percent go to Solano County.

In 2012, almost $1,200 per capita in foundation grants went to San Francisco County and over $200 per capita went to agencies in Alameda and Marin. Solano agencies received just $3 per capita in foundation spending.

Join an upcoming session on September 30th with key Solano County players for families and heath to find out how to make a difference there.
