s the saying goes, “If you want to go fast,
go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
Much of our work involves participating in
partnerships with governments, funders,
donors, and community members. These are
our four key partnership initiatives.
Great Communities Collaborative
Great Communities Collaborative envisions a
socially equitable, economically prosperous,
and environmentally sustainable Bay Area
where communities are engaged in shaping
their own futures. GCC’s network and partner
organizations collaborate to address the
challenges of regional land use, transportation,
housing, and climate resilience toward the
outcome of a region that is made up of healthy,
thriving neighborhoods that are affordable
to communities of color and connected to
regional opportunities.
HOPE SF is the nation’s first large-scale community development and reparations initiative
aimed at creating vibrant, inclusive, mixed-income communities in San Francisco’s public
housing sites without displacing the original
residents. Over the past 10 years, HOPE SF has
made great progress in supporting residents
with new homes and a sense of cultural belonging. HOPE SF has developed powerful new
programs, formed strong collaboratives, and
provided the kind of support that families need
to thrive.
Partnership for the Bay’s Future
The Partnership for the Bay’s Future advances
a more inclusive and equitable future for our
region by addressing the interconnected challenges of housing, transportation, and economic
opportunity. It was launched in early 2019 after
extensive consultation with community and faith
leaders, residents, housing experts, elected
officials, nonprofit and for-profit developers,
business leaders, and philanthropic leaders. The
partnership is led by the San Francisco Foundation, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, and Local
Initiatives Support Corporation.
ReWork the Bay
ReWork the Bay brings together leaders in economic justice, education and training, business,
and philanthropy to advance collective solutions
for a diverse and equitable Bay Area. It uses a
combination of pooled funds, convening, and
advocacy to advance its work among a range of
stakeholders across the nine-county Bay Area
region. Since its launch in 2004, ReWork the Bay
(formerly the Bay Area Workforce Funders Collaborative) has distributed $16 million in pooled
and aligned funding, serving more than 4,000
people in the Bay Area.
