  1. A Path to Economic Well-being: The Endeavor Fund Cohort

    Leave a Comment

    We are thrilled to announce the seven Bay Area nonprofits receiving grants from the Walter & Elise Haas Fund’s most substantial philanthropic initiative to date — the Endeavor Fund. These seven nonprofits will be awarded a total investment of $24.5M over the next seven years to combat one of the toughest problems of our time; closing the racial and gender wealth gap. This cohort of nonprofits has over 150 combined years of experience in building systems for a more equitable future. They are leaders in fighting the barriers to economic well-being and share our steadfast commitment to centering communities by prioritizing values of family, belonging, shared responsibility, and possibility. Perhaps most importantly, the skilled individuals employed by these organizations are honored, trusted, and beloved by the people they serve. We proudly support these leaders and organizations — we share their vision of a better tomorrow and look forward to partnering with them to amplify their impact and contribute to creating a more equitable society.

    is committed to advancing economic, racial, and social justice by building an inclusive economy based on good jobs and healthy communities. For more than 20 years, EBASE has united low-wage workers, communities of color, immigrants, and faith-rooted organizations to build power and create real change in worksites, neighborhoods, and at city halls. Its “whole worker” approach to coalition-building centers the voices of grassroots BIPOC leaders and meaningfully addresses a broad set of systemic challenges that are key to closing the economic and racial wealth gap: access to quality jobs, stable and safe housing, investment in public services, and community health.

    Throughout its history, EBASE and its allies have won dozens of local policies. During the COVID-19 pandemic, EBASE was at the forefront of fighting to protect the rights of tens of thousands of low-wage workers, who are majority people of color and were deemed to be essential workers — the backbone of our economy. EBASE won a nationally precedent-setting good jobs policy that has shaped large-scale economic development at the Port of Oakland, resulting in thousands of well-paying jobs. This transformative win benefits many residents of Oakland, primarily low-income, Black people, and people who were formerly incarcerated. EBASE is currently organizing tenants and convening coalition allies to pass local protections that ensure working families have stable and safe homes in response to the displacement of low-wage workers to Contra Costa County.

    East Bay Community Law Center (EBCLC)

    is a Black woman-led organization that promotes the well-being of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) women. The organization’s team of legal experts provides direct services in Alameda and Contra Costa counties for those enduring the structural barriers to prosperity. EBCLC’s services span eviction defense, debt alleviation, immigration relief, record remedies, education justice, public benefits advocacy, and transactional legal services.

    By investing in systems change, EBCLC leverages real-time data from its legal practice to draft and champion legislation that addresses the most essential racial and economic needs in the community. Its unique ability to understand current trends led EBCLC to drive Alameda County’s eviction moratorium, the longest-lasting in the country, by tying it to the lifting of the COVID-19 public health order.

    cultivates low-income women entrepreneurs as they formalize and grow their food businesses. The organization focuses primarily on women from communities of color and immigrant communities because these entrepreneurs experience a comparative lack of resources and more significant barriers to entering the formal food industry. For over 18 years, La Cocina has been reducing barriers by providing affordable commercial kitchen space, industry-specific technical assistance, and access to market opportunities for aspiring entrepreneurs — 94% of them women, 94% of them people of color, and 65% of them parents.

    What started as a small grassroots organization in the Mission District of San Francisco has grown into the best-known kitchen incubator program in the United States and has inspired similar nonprofit incubators across the globe. There are currently over 80 active businesses that are part of the La Cocina community, which includes businesses at the La Cocina Municipal Marketplace, the nation’s first women-led food hall. At its core is a commitment to preserving and reinforcing a vibrant, inclusive, and diverse local food economy. Food businesses are not merely ways to build wealth: they connect the whole ecosystem of an economy — customers, farmers, small vendors, neighborhood partners, the city, and more. La Cocina has built a place where women, BIPOC, and immigrant small business owners can claim a place at the table and be the catalysts for economic development for their communities.

    Oakland Kids First (OKF)

    is a youth-centered organization that advances racial justice and education equity. Every year, OKF provides hundreds of students of color across Oakland public high schools with paid internships, academic and postsecondary support services, case management, leadership development programming, and organizing opportunities. In short, OKF ensures that students have access to the programs and resources needed to navigate existing learning conditions and the support to transform systemic inequities through organizing.

    OKF’s youth-led organizing campaigns include school-based advocacy, as well as citywide campaigns to provide students with the conditions they need to thrive. Recently, OKF youth leaders built a youth coalition to research and co-write the Oakland Youth Vote legislation with the City Council President, which would lower the voting age in local school board elections to include 16 and 17-year-olds. That policy passed the city council unanimously and made history when it passed with 67% of the vote. The Oakland Youth Vote campaign builds power for youth to make decisions about their own schools, hold elected officials accountable to meet their needs, and develop skills for a lifetime of civic engagement.

    advances equity and economic mobility by providing Oakland’s young people and their families with opportunities and resources to fulfill their college and career aspirations. The organization brings a cradle-to-career, multi-generational support model to the Oakland community, with programs that start investing at birth and pave the way for economic security. Rooted in the belief that education is a key to breaking cycles of intergenerational poverty, OP offers programs to support children in every milestone of their educational journey, helping students and families navigate the complex systems of education across generations and overcome the barriers that often prevent low-income and first-generation students from accessing and completing college.

    Since 2016, OP has secured resources to support individual college savings accounts and scholarships for over 1,400 Oakland children and families, empowering Oakland parents to save, build assets, and even buy homes. In the last seven years, it guided 9,000 high school students to college and their chosen careers and awarded a total of $18.5M in scholarships to over 2,800 graduates. This spring OP is poised to award a record-breaking 900 scholarships to Oakland public high school seniors starting their postsecondary journeys. The organization expects to support college savings accounts and scholarships for 30,000 children and families through the year 2035.

    provides support, mentorship, training, employment, and advocacy by and for young women and trans youth of all genders in California who have grown up in poverty, experienced the juvenile legal and foster care systems, have had to survive living and working on the streets, and who have experienced significant violence in their lives. The organization’s work is grounded in a holistic approach that meets immediate needs, builds each participant’s capacity for self-determination, and creates systemic change for our communities through local and statewide organizing.

    In 2019, YWFC successfully organized to shut down San Francisco’s juvenile hall in order to stop the criminalization of BIPOC young women and trans youth of all genders. To prevent new pipelines to incarceration from being built to replace juvenile halls, YWFC launched the Beloved Housing continuum: a transformative, community-based alternative to incarceration for young people, their families, and communities. In 2020, the organization launched Freedom 2030, a ten-year campaign to end the incarceration of women and trans people of all genders in the state of California. YWFC has continued to win victories towards these goals, including organizing to get to zero girls incarcerated in Santa Clara County’s juvenile hall, passing statewide legislation to provide a Youth Bill of Rights in all county juvenile detention centers, and continuing to organize communities across the state of California in support alternatives to incarceration.

    is a network of 115 organizations dedicated to expanding the capacity of young people and organizations in California to practice transformative youth organizing, build power, and create long-term transformation in our communities. YO! Cali builds leadership pathways and serves as a hub for youth organizing, with directly impacted young people at the forefront of a bold, multi-issue movement for transformation, liberation, healing, collective power, and justice. Launched in 2017, YO! Cali was established by more than a dozen youth organizing and multi-generational organizations to work toward an interdependent future of abundance and justice. YO! Cali focuses on four core strategies to strengthen the youth organizing ecosystem and social justice movement: capacity building, power building, healing justice, and field building.

    YO! Cali leverages the power of youth leaders from low-income communities of color to transform the systems that perpetuate scarcity, inequity, and racial injustice. With hundreds of youth across the state, the organization drafted the Young People’s Agenda, which reflects their vision for a world with equity, freedom, and racial and social justice, rooted in mutual support, strength, leadership, and love. In addition to training youth leaders, YO! Cali mobilizes funders to rally behind the voices and vision of young people for our collective prosperity.

  2. Introducing the Generational Recovery Fund

    Leave a Comment

    The Walter & Elise Haas Fund is honored to participate in and support the Generational Recovery Fund, a pooled fund dedicated to the recovery of those most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic: The Bay Area’s youth. Its first round of grants distributes $1.5 million to fifteen youth-serving nonprofits in San Francisco.


    About the Generational Recovery Fund

    The Generational Recovery Fund (GRF) recognizes the power philanthropy has to help counter the potentially disastrous, pandemic-related consequences faced by young people — especially those who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). On top of personal and economic losses, this generation of youth has lived through a crucial year and a half of their lives dealing with isolation, illness, and uncertainty.

    Over the past four months, the Generational Recovery Fund raised a first tranche of over $1.5 million to be disseminated as general operating support grants. This first round of grants aids fifteen youth-serving nonprofits in addressing priorities identified by youth themselves: wellness, learning, and jobs.

    While Northern California Grantmakers (NCG) facilitates the GRF with pooled fund support from Amalgamated Foundation, the GRF is independent by design. And its grant making decisions are made by an independent team of youth and adults.

    Centered on Youth

    It is important to us that the GRF not only invests in youth, but also that it centers on youth at every turn. Youth voices guided the creation of the GRF in April 2021, highlighting their needs beginning in those first weeks of California’s initial shelter-in-place order. Youth co-designed the pillars and priorities for the Generational Recovery Fund’s first round of grants. Alongside other community members, youth nominated organizations for potential grants, joined panels to provide direction on grantmaking, and worked alongside adults in making final decisions.

    The GRF holds to heart the belief that nonprofit resilience today will translate to youth resilience both today and tomorrow. That’s part of why Generational Recovery Fund grants are intentionally given as general operating support grants. It’s also why GRF grants are made over a time period determined by each recipient organization, so nonprofits can respond to their community’s immediate needs while planning for long-term recovery.

    Grantmaking Details

    Generational Recovery Fund grantmaking is directed towards youth aged five to eighteen, and especially to BIPOC youth in that age range. It also favors organizations run by BIPOC leadership, that are deeply rooted in the community, and that offer youth compensated leadership positions. Among the three focus areas of the Generational Recovery Fund (wellness, learning, and jobs), youth prioritized those addressing wellness and jobs.

    From an initial list of over 40 nominated organizations, fifteen were awarded grants. Nonprofits receiving grants:

    • train and pay youth as environmental educators and community stewards;
    • organize systems-impacted girls and gender-expansive youth of color to campaign and lead the work to decriminalize girls;
    • empower Samoan and Pacific Islander elementary school youth through their culture;
    • teach low-income working youth about transforming their first paychecks into economic mobility pathways, so they can then train youth-serving nonprofits in the same; and
    • pay youth to support elders’ rental assistance needs and to run a community food pantry.

    Learn more about all fifteen grantees on the Generational Recovery Fund website.

    What Comes Next

    The process of growing this emerging fund has been extraordinary, from the ready generosity of the eight different foundations involved, to the incredible tenacity of the nominated nonprofits — we wish only that we had been able to provide grants to all of the recommended organizations. $1.5 million is worth celebrating and also not nearly enough.

    Please consider helping the Generational Recovery Fund do more for youth.

    These grants represent only the Generational Recovery Fund’s first round. We want your help in strengthening the process, whether by focusing the areas of support; adjusting our direction to match specific, local community needs; or by providing funds. Already, participating funders are convening to consider grantmaking needs in the East Bay for the next round of giving. Let’s do more, together.


  3. Welcome Jamie Allison-Hope, New W&EHF Executive Director


    The Board of Trustees is delighted to announce that effective February 1, Jamie Allison-Hope will succeed Pam David as Executive Director of the Walter & Elise Haas Fund.

    Ms. Allison-Hope is currently Vice President Programs at the S. H. Cowell Foundation. Pam David, the Fund’s ED for 15 years, stepped down as planned at the close of 2017 — she is now pursuing the next phase of her career.

    In the 65-year history of the Fund, it has had only had two Executive Directors, making Ms. Allison-Hope its third. Board President, Peter E. Haas, Jr. extends his congratulations and welcome to Jamie Allison-Hope:

    We’re so pleased to have someone of Jamie’s caliber joining with us to lead the Fund in its future work. Jamie is devoted to developing the kind of leadership that brings a more healthy, just, and vibrant society closer to hand for everyone. Through her work with S. H. Cowell Foundation, she understands how crucial it is to ensure access and create opportunity for all in the Bay Area and beyond. On behalf of my fellow trustees and staff, I’m thrilled to extend to Jamie the warmest of possible welcomes. We are very much looking forward to working with her.

    Jamie Allison-Hope has helped lead the S. H. Cowell Foundation since 2006, beginning as the Program Officer in charge of Youth Development grantmaking. She became a Senior Program Officer in 2012, her portfolio growing to encompass Affordable Housing and management of program-related investments (PRIs). Then, she took over the role of Vice President Programs for S. H. Cowell Foundation in 2016.

    Ms. Allison-Hope grew up in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and received her undergraduate degree in Political Science and Economics at the University of Tennessee. She earned her Masters from the University of California at Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy. Her breadth of civic involvement includes serving on the board of The Whitman Institute, a philanthropy focused on promoting equity, among other priorities.

    Ms. Allison-Hope says:

    Being asked to build on the legacy of the Fund’s work is an extraordinary opportunity. It’s also a privilege, and one I’m honored and thrilled to have been asked to take on. The Fund’s mission of building a healthy, just, and vibrant society is one to which I have long been personally committed — and it’s one that’s vitally important for all of us to invest in right now. I look forward to helping to lead the Fund into its next phase of work and to adding my creativity and innovation to what Pam David, the family, staff, and so many others have built.

    Over its long existence, the Walter & Elise Haas Fund has remained focused on the areas of support Walter A. Haas, Sr. and Elise Stern Haas identified in 1952. Their sense of responsibility for society, their active involvement and leadership, and their respect for community found a strong champion in Pam David.

    Among other achievements, Pam extended the Fund’s giving to include a portfolio to address economic security for the working poor and built upon the Fund’s commitment to collaborative partnerships and community initiatives that continue to improve lives in the Bay Area and beyond. Pam predicts Ms. Allison-Hope will find great success at the Fund:

    Jamie Allison-Hope is an inspired selection by our board of trustees. She is an experienced and thoughtful leader who shares the family’s and my values and perspective on the role of philanthropy in our communities. I am confident that she will not just continue the Fund’s legacy of being a reliable partner, facilitator, and funder, but will take the Fund to new heights of relevance and effectiveness. It has been an honor to lead the Fund for the past 15 years, and I am so happy to have Jamie step in at this difficult time for the nonprofit sector and the communities to which we hold ourselves accountable.

    Please join us in welcoming Jamie Allison-Hope to the Walter & Elise Haas Fund!

  4. Pam David to Step Down as W&EHF Executive Director

    Leave a Comment

    The Board of Trustees of the Walter & Elise Haas Fund has announced that Executive Director Pam David will step down at the end of 2017, bringing her successful 15-year tenure to a close. During Ms. David’s stewardship, the vision and legacy of Walter and Elise Haas was enhanced and expanded for a new generation of trustees and residents of the continually evolving Bay Area.

    Leading by Example

    During her tenure as Executive Director, Ms. David built upon the Fund’s commitment to collaborative partnerships and community initiatives that continue to improve lives in the Bay Area and beyond. Under her leadership, the Fund launched an effective program area addressing economic security for the working poor, continued its commitment to public education, celebrated the Creative Work Fund’s 20th anniversary, and supported innovation in the Jewish community. Additionally, a $1 million annual Safety Net fund was created, helping communities respond to urgent food access and shelter needs. The Fund also played a leadership role in strengthening the capacity of anchor institutions in low-income neighborhoods to respond to disaster.

    Ms. David’s ability to bridge the gulf between the nonprofit, philanthropic, and government sectors increased the Fund’s effectiveness and reach at every level. Of particular note, she served as a board member and chair of Northern California Grantmakers and provided leadership to HOPE SF, San Francisco’s signature initiative to improve the lives of public housing residents.

    Inspired to Make a Difference

    Board chair William Goldman, a fourth-generation descendant of Walter and Elise Haas, said, “We have benefitted greatly from Pam’s ability to facilitate difficult conversations, find common ground, and build effective cross-sector partnerships. While Pam will step down at the end of this year, we know she will continue to offer her leadership and experience to benefit the social good. We applaud and honor all she has achieved as she approaches this next phase of her career.”

    Pam David, speaking of her departure, said, “I have had the immense honor of working with three generations of Haas family trustees and a staff that defines the word ‘excellence.’ I am grateful for the Trustees’ leadership, their critical support, and their enduring commitment.”

    Ms. David will serve as Executive Director of the Haas Sr. Fund until the end of December 2017. The trustees have begun planning for this important leadership transition and have launched a comprehensive search for her successor.

    About the Walter & Elise Haas Sr. Fund

    The San Francisco Bay Area’s Walter & Elise Haas Fund works to ensure access and create opportunity. Its support of a healthy, just, and vibrant society focuses on the arts, economic security, education, Jewish life, and safety net services that benefit people on the margins. The Fund was established in 1952.

  6. Successfully Navigating Leadership Transitions

    Leave a Comment
    created by Proletkult Graphik from Noun Project

    We are excited to share news of the California launch of What’s Next: Leading a Thriving Transition, a program for long-time nonprofit leaders who anticipate transitioning out of their leadership roles within the next five years.

    We know that leadership transitions — especially those of long-time leaders — raise specific challenges and opportunities for executives, boards, and organizations. This three-day program helps. It helps late-career leaders to explore their legacy; supports boards in preparing for new leadership; and strengthens organizational readiness for change.

    Each What’s Next program invites executives to two intensive retreats bolstered by coaching and a peer network that encourages thoughtful reflection on preparing for change. Leadership transitions may be inevitable but there’s no reason why well-planned transitions have to remain as rare as they currently are in the nonprofit sector.

    The Walter & Elise Haas Fund partners with The David & Lucile Packard Foundation, The Durfee Foundation, and William and Flora Hewlett Foundation in order to offer What’s Next: Leading a Thriving Transition sessions in California for the first time. We’re doing this because we believe well-considered leadership transitions ought to be the norm.

    As some leaders may not yet be ready to broadcast their plans, inquiries about or participation in this program will be kept entirely confidential. All inquiries and participant selection will be managed by Third Sector New England, the organization that has provided this program to more than 65 leaders to date.

    Northern and Southern California sessions of What’s Next: Leading a Thriving Transition are open to late-career leaders from any nonprofit sector, but space is limited.

    Cohorts will meet in:

    • Petaluma, March 20 to 22 and June 11 to 13
    • Santa Barbara, March 14 to 16 and June 4 to 6

    The deadline to submit applications is February 8, 2017.

  7. Pam David Appointed Berkeley–Haas Social Impact Fellow

    Leave a Comment

    pamela-davidWalter & Elise Haas Fund Executive Director Pam David has, with honor, accepted an appointment to serve as a Berkeley–Haas Social Impact Fellow.

    Based at the Institute for Business & Social Impact (IBSI), University of California Berkeley–Haas School of Business, this program — now in its second year — invites professionals of exceptional talent and experience to serve as mentors to students. Fellows join panel discussions, attend events, and share their expertise with students and faculty. Through these contributions of time and thought, Fellows work in collaboration to amplify the social impact of an emerging generation of future leaders.

    Ben Mangan, Executive Director and Lecturer at the Center for Social Sector Leadership, describes the program as one that brings expertise and experience from the front lines of social impact direct to students. Choosing Social Impact Fellows is challenging, he says. The process requires narrowing a large initial list of potential candidates down into a much smaller group, one that can add a significant and diverse range of insights to the Berkeley–Haas experience.

    Mr. Mangan says of Pam’s appointment, “She has such a distinguished career that spans multiple sectors — being a pioneer in the LGBTQ community and movement for equality, serving as a public servant, and on through her leadership at the Walter & Elise Haas Fund. We try to select fellows who have this kind of breadth of experience. Pam will be an exemplary Fellow in this regard.”

    Pam adds:

    I am honored to have been invited to be a Social Impact Fellow. I started my career teaching Women’s Studies at San Francisco State and have always loved going back into college classrooms to share my experiences and perspective. I look forward to connecting with — and learning from — the next generation of business and social sector leaders. And I am honored to work with such respected leaders as Laura Tyson and Ben Mangan.

    Pam joins three Fellows returning from the inaugural 2015-16 year — Jorge Calderon, William Rosenzweig, and Jennifer Walske — along with three newly appointed Social Impact Fellows, Christy Chin, Robert Eccles, and Susanne Stormer for a full cohort of seven.

    Speaking of the inaugural group of Berkeley–Haas Social Impact Fellows, IBSI Director Laura Tyson said:

    “These fellows share one thing in common: they are changing the world with their deep and meaningful work connected to social impact and we are honored to welcome them to Haas. As the fellows become actively engaged on campus… we expect that they will create great new conversations, and strengthen their relationships with the Institute and with Haas.”

  9. A Call for Tax Reform is a Call for Equity

    Leave a Comment

    The Tax Alliance for Economic Mobility recently sent around a compelling call to action on the issue of national tax reform. As the Tax Alliance clearly and correctly points out, an important goal of our tax system—beyond funding the government—is to aid Americans in developing their financial security.

    In this goal the system has failed.

    The current sprawling tax code favors the wealthy by an untenable margin. Its parade of deductions, credits, exclusions, and other loopholes provides more benefit to the top one percent of households than it does to those earning dramatically less. It leaves those Americans who most require assistance in building financial assets, such as savings for retirement, educational expenses or business development, with virtually no help.

    The Tax Alliance’s call for tax reform is essentially a call for equity—a call that resonates with the Fund, as equity drives our work. This initiative from the Tax Alliance also requires cross-sector collaboration, a central tenet of how we at the Walter & Elise Haas Fund (W&EHF) pursue our goals.

    While this campaign from the Tax Alliance for Economic Mobility is new, the push for economic equity is not, and it is certainly not new for W&EHF.

    More than a decade ago, we launched the grantmaking area we call Economic Security for the Working Poor to address the widening income and asset gaps that separate the struggling from the affluent. At that time, work in this field was limited, though a few strong voices were helping to both draw attention and build momentum. From early on, working with our innovative grantees and foundation colleagues in the Asset Funders Network, W&EHF staff and trustees realized that developing economic security for the working poor ultimately required policy change at the state and federal levels.

    That means tax reform—not in a progressive vs. conservative political manner, but in a bipartisan fashion, one that logically addresses failing policies of the current system. The Walter & Elise Haas Fund is proud to be an early and consistent supporter of the Tax Alliance for Economic Mobility. Our work on tax reform has taught us much and continues to teach us important lessons about collaboration, consensus, and perseverance. Working together we are building the foundation for significant policy shifts that will improve the economic well-being of millions of Americans.
