2015 has been a busy year for NCG! This year we decided to expand our membership qualifications, and in doing so have some great members who are new to our community. We wanted to take a moment to celebrate them — each week we will be featuring some of our new members in a continuing blog series.
Help us welcome board and staff of these organizations!
Asia Pacific Fund
The mission of Asian Pacific Fund is to strengthen the Asian and Pacific Islander community in the Bay Area by increasing philanthropy and supporting the organizations that serve our most vulnerable community members. They are working to increase and mobilize resources from donors, corporations and institutions as well as bring to light emerging issues as they impact the Bay Area API community.
President & Executive Director Audrey Yamamoto is bringing experienced leadership to APF and the NCG community.
Caring about nonprofits and the work they do affects all NCG members and Guidestar’s mission to revolutionize philanthropy by providing information that advances transparency can help all of us. They enable users to make better decisions and encourage charitable giving.
They are a 501(c)(3) public charity that collects, organizes, and presents needed information in an easy-to-understand format while remaining neutral. Providing nonprofit information to a broad audience at no cost to those users is an important part of their public service, one that they have pledged to continue.
Help us welcome CEO Jacob Harold and all of Guidestar’s board and staff.
The McKenzie Foundation
We are excited to welcome The McKenzie Foundation of San Francisco!
The McKenzie Foundation of San Francisco is founded on the simple belief that awareness brings understanding and empathy. And with understanding and knowledge we can better find treatment and cures.
The Foundation’s mission is to help build awareness around adolescent mental health issues, reducing the associated stigma, in order to better find treatment and cures. It will focus its grant making on programs and projects that educate and raise public awareness about mental health issues, as well as support and enhance the lives of individuals who face mental health challenges. The Foundation will seek out organizations that offer outstanding research, education, treatment and support programs and projects in the broad field of mental health.
