As part of the San Francisco Foundation's emergency response grantmaking, the foundation created the Nonprofit Transitions Fund to help nonprofit organizations rethink and regroup in response to the downturn in the economy.
The goal of the Nonprofit Transitions Fund is to help nonprofits reduce costs and time spent on administrative work, as well as increase productivity.
The fund will provide a total of $350,000 to support: serious planning efforts, consultants, due diligence, and other expenses related to the following activities: back office collaborations between two or more organizations (including rent, equipment, and group insurance joint purchasing, as well as centralizing human resources, payroll, benefits administration, and financial and grants management); service delivery joint ventures between two or more organizations; merger/acquisition/consolidation; post-merger integration or closure costs; dissolution (voluntary/involuntary); and bankruptcy.
This fund is intended for activities such as strategic planning and fund development. It is not intended for organizations engaging in staff transitions, capacity building work (such as streamlining internal operations), and/or establishing fiscal sponsorship.
Applicant organizations must have 501(c)(3) nonprofit status (or a fiscal sponsor) and must primarily serve residents in at least one of the five Bay Area counties served by the foundation: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo.
Requests will only be considered from organizations that have received programmatic or operational support from the San Francisco Foundation within the last five years.
Grants will generally range from $10,000 to $30,000 each.
