Mission:
Community Initiatives enables individuals and groups, working together, to create and invest in projects that benefit the public. We do this by providing fiscal sponsorship and financial, human resources, and grants management services.
In 1996, The San Francisco Foundation found itself inundated with nonprofit projects requesting its fiscal sponsorship. In response to this need - and recognizing that the nonprofit sector would benefit from a structure that allowed community-benefit projects to incubate their ideas before taking on the rigors of incorporation - the Foundation launched a new 501(c)(3).

Since its inception, Community Initiatives has sponsored more than 160 projects throughout California and received more than $115 million in donations for their support. Today, Community Initiatives has 90 active projects, a budget of $20 million (most recent audited), and 90 employees and 300 independent contractors working across the state, with a focus on the San Francisco Bay Area. These projects operate in all areas of nonprofit endeavor, including arts and culture, education, environment, health, human services, and public affairs.

Community Initiatives continues to grow and expand its service to great ideas in the nonprofit sphere.
