About Us

About Us

Crankstart envisions a vibrant, thriving Bay Area, where our region’s prosperity is shared, strengthened, and realized by all who live here. We are a family foundation, based in San Francisco, working with others to address social issues and their underlying causes. Our main interests are education; a thriving democracy; economic mobility; housing security; the environment; and the basic sciences. In 2021, we made over $250m in grants, with about 60% going to nonprofits in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Crankstart is very much a startup and consists of 11 core team members of diverse backgrounds. We value: authenticity, collaboration, learning, commitment, and hope.
