The kind of pressure the housing crunch is putting on individuals, is also...

In the November 2018 elections, 31 percent of youth (ages 18-29) voted - the highest level of participation among youth in a mid-term election in the past three decades. Simultaneously, the country is in the middle of a massive demographic shift where young people of color are the fastest-growing segment of the population.

A huge...
For two years, the #MeToo Movement has dominated the news headlines as women who’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted continue to step forward to tell their stories. #MeToo momentum was quickly followed by the Time’s Up Movement for workplace equity for women and people of color. With power and equality in the news, philanthropies across the Bay Area have begun inward conversations about their organizations’ culture. Gender, power, race and money give us plenty to consider when it comes to barriers to good policies and best practices for creating safe cultures. As it turns out, lenient...

In his proposed 2019-2020 budget, the Governor calls for a series of bold and smart investments intended to broaden economic security and opportunity for Californians, while continuing to strengthen the state’s underlying fiscal health. With significant expansions in support of low- and middle-income Californians who are struggling to make ends meet and access greater economic opportunity, Governor Newsom has begun to lay the groundwork for significant investments...

Companies dedicate numerous resources to identify issues that are important to their stakeholders, but many companies develop program portfolios that don’t meet their expectations or fully support the goals of the company. In many cases, community program goals are not fully developed, and the programs provide minimal value to the company’s efforts to meet expectations expressed by a broad range of stakeholders. In this program, we will explored an assessment process and tools that help corporate citizenship leaders ensure their community programs add value by complementing and supporting the...
The Nonprofit Displacement Project Working Group along with other foundations, government funders and nonprofits have crowd-sourced solutions some immediate and some long-term.
