A report of Bay Area nonprofits released by Northern California Grantmakers, The San Francisco Foundation and partners–shows that most respondents (82%) are concerned about sustaining their work in the face of rising office space costs in the region.
- Steady increases in commercial real estate rental rates have pushed office prices to 122% above where they were five years ago
- Bay Area markets are now the toughest in the nation
- Nonprofits serving communities of color and low income communities show an especially high level of concern.
- Nearly two out of every three nonprofits say they will have to make a decision about moving within the next five years.
This report is the first for the region as a whole and demonstrates the scope of the issue across Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.
