WHO WE ARE
Full Circle Fund (FCF) is a nonprofit community that leverages its professionals’ financial and intellectual capital to accelerate nonprofits and build a better S.F. Bay Area. Our Members come from different sectors to partner with local nonprofits, or Grant Partners, in a unique model of engaged philanthropy.
After 20 years of giving, we are at an exciting inflection point and well-positioned to provide support to the social sector in response to the Covid-19 crisis. After interviewing 100+ trusted partners, including local nonprofits, other funders, and civic leaders, we launched our first Corporate Accelerator Fund and improved our Grant Cycle and Tech Accelerator Fund programs. Our team and volunteer Members are committed to getting resources to those who need them most to make lasting systemic change in the Bay Area and beyond. Join us!
Leadership & Staff
We have a dynamic, committed group of leaders who enable us to create lasting change through directing Full Circle Fund’s grantmaking initiatives, programs, stakeholdership, and operations.
The leadership includes our Staff, Board of Directors, and Co-Chairs.
Full Circle Fund’s impact is divided among four issue areas, which we refer to as our Circles: Economic Opportunity, Education, Environment & Energy, and Health. The four Circles enable Full Circle Fund Members with a common interest to join forces with local nonprofits to practice “engaged philanthropy” in our four Impact Circles.
Full Circle Fund brings together socially conscious Bay Area changemakers to address today’s most pressing issues. Our robust programming allows Members to engage in the way that works best for their interest, availability, and finances.
Over the last 16 years, Full Circle Fund has partnered with 100+ local nonprofits to accelerate impact through our Grant Cycle. The unrestricted funds raised by our network provide our nonprofit partners with the resources to grow.
We also support the work of 60+ organizations annually with pro-bono consulting as part of our Nimble Nonprofit flexible engagement series.
