Hosted by the San Francisco Foundation, ReWork the Bay envisions an equitable Bay Area where everyone, especially low-income working people, have access to quality, empowered jobs — jobs that allow them to benefit from and shape the region’s economy. We believe it should be possible for everyone to live full lives with security, dignity, and agency in our work, home, and communities. To that end, we bring together leaders in economic justice, education and training, business and philanthropy to advance collective solutions for a diverse and equitable Bay Area.
Our roots are as a funder table (formerly called the Bay Area Workforce Funders Collaborative) that has granted more than $16 million to support efforts promoting economic mobility for marginalized communities. While we continue to deploy pooled and aligned grantmaking dollars to seed systems change projects, our table now includes leaders and organizations fighting on the front lines to make the Bay Area work for all. Together, we are driven by a deep commitment to advancing racial equity and developing collective solutions needed to tackle the challenges faced by working people in our region. We have eleven funder members and fifteen field leaders on our Equity at Work Council.
