SVCF Annual Reports & Financials
In 2020, a global pandemic upended all our lives, the murder of George Floyd ignited a wave of racial justice movements, and wildfires devastated significant swaths of our state. We faced a difficult election season and crucial census count. So much was at stake.
As a community foundation, SVCF knows the strengths and the needs of our local communities, and we translate this knowledge into strategies that influence and inspire our donors and partners to act. We work collaboratively in our community to pursue equity and deliver support for those who face the greatest challenges because of systemic injustices. And when disasters arise, we swiftly convene with our partners — including other community foundations — to pool capital and drive resources to those most in need.
Last year, in concert with our partners, we raised $65 million in COVID response funds, supporting hundreds of thousands of families, businesses and nonprofit organizations across the 10-county Bay Area region. Thanks to our donors, in 2020, nonprofit organizations received $1.95 billion — and $524 million of that stayed right here in the Bay Area, helping local organizations do vital work. Stories of those inspiring individuals, organizations and partnerships are featured here in our annual report.
We are very proud of all we accomplished during very challenging times. We extend our sincere gratitude to our donors, community partners and staff. Our work is not possible without you.
