About Us

The Berkeley Community Fund was founded in 1992 by local visionaries who shared a concept of a community based on social justice, hope, and equality, and a belief in returning something to the community that had fostered their own success and growth. Today this legacy continues, as the Fund taps the creative talents of individuals, the strengths of local institutions and the material wealth of our community.

Mission of the Berkeley Community Fund

For the long-term well-being of our community, the Berkeley Community Fund is committed to building models for social progress that will:

  • narrow inequities within our community;

  • create hope and opportunity for disadvantaged youth;

  • enhance cultural and intellectual diversity, while building consensus to address common problems; and

  • stimulate public and private investment to improve the quality of community life.

Activities of the Fund are guided by
the following core values:

  • a love of Berkeley and a deep
    desire to make it a better
    place to live, work and become
    formally educated

  • a belief that philanthropy can
    strengthen and improve the
    quality of life for everyone
    in Berkeley

  • a commitment to serving the
    less fortunate in our city

  • a commitment to diversity and
    an appreciation for the value it
    adds to finding solutions to
    local problems.
