Our mission is to mobilize resources and act as a catalyst for change to build strong communities, foster civic leadership, and promote philanthropy in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The Partnership for the Bay's Future (the Partnership), is a collaborative multisector effort focused on the region's interconnected challenges of housing, transportation, and economic opportunity. Its goal is to increase affordable housing and ensure vibrant communities of racial equity and economic inclusion.
The Partnership is beginning with a focus on housing, seeking to strengthen protections for tenants, and increase housing preservation and production with the development of an Investment Fund (managed by LISC), a Policy Fund (managed by SFF), and a policy working group to help spur coordination and collaboration for policy change at the local, regional and statewide levels. The Partnership is focused on San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, and Contra Costa counties.
The Partnership seeks to develop a strong Regional Partner Network a network of cross-sector leaders and partners with a common understanding of the housing, transportation, and economic opportunity-related challenges facing the region, a shared regional agenda of potential solutions, and a collective commitment to advancing the agenda and moving solutions forward through leadership, collective action, and the investment of resources.
