    Cities are full of institutions and resources, governmental and private, that serve communities. Schools, hospitals, grocery stores, libraries, job training centers, swimming pools, housing projects, and transit centers, just to name a few. By knowing where these assets are, governments can identify underserved neighborhoods, and encourage development where appropriate resources exist.

    Of course, cities have most of the information they need to site projects already. But different departments often work in their own silos, duplicating work and not taking advantage of ways they can work together. There’s tremendous value in having a single resource where anyone from any department can look up this sort of information.

    Across the United States, companies of all sizes increasingly recognize the importance of philanthropic community engagement. In 2017, those companies donated more than $20 billion to charitable causes.

    These businesses are using philanthropy to not only "do the right thing" but also to enhance the engagement of investors, employees and customers – all of which accrue to the bottom line.

    Companies are achieving deeper impact by making fewer (but larger) grants to fewer (but more carefully selected) recipients — rejecting the "peanut butter" approach of spreading resources wide and thin.

    Also, they are allocating the largest share of resources to strategic and signature programs. Education continues to be the best-funded program area. Disaster-relief is the program area with the largest increases.

    The San Francisco Foundation announces a $50 million investment from its endowment in a new mission-aligned investments pool that aims to generate positive social and financial returns.

    Traditional philanthropy, government, and capital markets must all work together to address today’s complex social challenges. As a civic leader, the San Francisco Foundation takes a holistic approach to advancing racial equity and economic inclusion in the Bay Area. Aside from grant funding, donor engagement, advocacy, and multi-sector partnerships, its diligent stewardship of the assets to which it is entrusted, along with strong performance, mean that the foundation can make an even greater impact on the Bay Area.

    “The scope and complexity of the issues that we are trying to address in the Bay Area require us to use all of the tools in our tool belt,” says foundation CEO Fred Blackwell. “We see investing in a values-aligned manner as part of how we achieve our overall mission and we don’t think we have to sacrifice returns.”

    Carol Larson is leaving after 15 years as president of the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and 30 years total at the $7.8 billion grant maker. She plans to step down after a successor is found.

    During her tenure, the Packard Foundation became a leader in climate philanthropy. In 2009, with the Hewlett and McKnight foundations, Packard gave ClimateWorks, a separate organization they created, a $1 billion mission: work to cut greenhouse-gas emissions in half by 2030.

    Following President Trump’s arrival in the White House, Larson became alarmed about the administration’s intention to bolt from the Paris Climate Accord and by its attempts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. In response, Packard increased its grant-making budget by $22 million.
