he San Francisco Foundation has
responded to the challenges and
opportunities of the Bay Area for more than
70 years. In that time, we have developed
lasting relationships and invested in longterm transformative work in neighborhoods
throughout the region. Over the years, we
have created the following programs that
are integral to our vision of equity in the
Bay Area.
The Foundation Alliance with Interfaith to
Heal Society, known as FAITHS, enhances
the work of faith-based organizations
to organize and advocate for equitable
policies and improve community services
in their neighborhoods and collectively for
the region. Since its creation in 1993, the
program has built an interfaith network of
more than 600 congregations and other
faith-based organizations that address
critical community issues in the Bay Area,
such as civic and cultural engagement,
criminal justice reform, immigration reform,
and affordable housing.
