Purpose and Activities

The foundation is committed to effecting positive change for at-risk and transition-age youth, ages 14-24, in five Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo. The foundation will fund organizations providing shelter and basic services, employment supports, family reunification, and alternatives to the juvenile justice system. Through the efforts of its grantees, the foundation hopes to generate immediate and measurable positive changes, and to work towards long term solutions that mitigate the need for more costly or punitive interventions in the future. The foundation will make grants to organizations working on: family reunification and supportive adult relationships for youth; food, housing, and other essential services for youth; job skills and employment opportunities for unemployed youth and young adults; and alternatives to judicial system involvement.


Established in 1998 in CA - Five Bridges Foundation began operations on October 1, 1998 when an existing nonprofit corporation was converted into a 501(c)(3) charitable corporation. The assets of the foundation are irrevocably dedicated to charitable purposes. Since the predecessor organization operated primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Foundation has determined that its giving will be confined to projects in one or more of five Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo.
