Our Northern California Office is Now in Oakland

This move — like our recent move to downtown Los Angeles — will support our mission and impact.

After 22 Years in San Francisco, Our Northern California Office Has Moved to Downtown Oakland!

On Monday, May 21, we opened the doors to our new Northern California office in downtown Oakland at 499 14th Street.

In May, we visited our new office. As you can see from our smiling faces, we’re excited to be making this move. Despite the welding torches, hammering and nailing, it was easy to imagine our bright new offices, meeting rooms and workspaces where we’ll work together to advance health and wellness for California communities.

This move — like our recent move to downtown Los Angeles — will support our mission and impact. Being in Oakland will bring us closer to many of our Bay Area grantees and the non-profit and philanthropic leaders we collaborate with in serving California. We look forward to seeing you in Oaktown!
