Today, we’re announcing a new CZI Community Fund to support local leaders in the Bay Area. Non-profits, schools, and municipalities serving residents of Belle Haven, East Palo Alto, North Fair Oaks, and Redwood City are encouraged to apply. This fund will respond to local community needs around education, housing, homelessness, immigration, transportation, and workforce development — areas identified by local residents and leaders as top priorities.
We work closely with partners in the Bay Area to advance solutions to issues in education and affordable housing, and want to continue to find ways we can support local leaders to build stronger, more equitable communities. We recognize that there is more work to do and will be looking for new ways to support these and other communities in the Bay Area in the future. We’re hopeful this fund, in addition to our ongoing work locally around education, housing, and other key issues, will help ensure a brighter future for residents in these communities.
