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.

The Fund serves the City of Berkeley 's most pressing social needs and improves the quality of community life by connecting the gifts of concerned donors to effective local programs.
