About Us

The Korean American Community Foundation of San Francisco (KACF-­‐SF) is committed to transforming the lives of individuals and families within the Korean American community in the greater San Francisco Bay Area by working to uplift and strengthen those who are most vulnerable, disadvantaged, and underserved in our community. We do this by:

  • Raising awareness of needs and issues in our community in order to bring attention and new resources to address those needs.
  • Providing grants and capacity-building assistance to community-based organizations working to promote self-sufficiency among our most vulnerable neighbors. Our current funding priority areas are: physical and mental health; senior care and empowerment; safety; and youth empowerment.
  • Fostering philanthropic giving among Korean Americans by providing our supporters with an effective vehicle to magnify the impact of their giving and to build lasting connections across generations and communities.

KACF-­‐SF, launched in October 2014, is the first of its kind serving the greater Bay Area’s Korean American community. In less than three years, the Foundation has become a significant funder of community-based organizations providing vital health and social services to vulnerable Korean Americans throughout the Bay Area. KACF-SF is affiliated with the Korean American Community Foundation (KACF) in New York, now celebrating their 15th anniversary.
