Home Background


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.
