A Just East Bay – where all communities have supports in place to not only survive, but to thrive.

The East Bay Community Foundation believes that a strong social justice movement is a critical driver of change. We envision a Just East Bay where all members of our community are treated fairly, resulting in equitable opportunity and outcomes. Because progress — is for everyone.

We partner with communities to champion quality education for all students, fight for good jobs, and to amplify the voices that often go unheard.
