Grantees are chosen for their unique and provocative approach for re-imagining the urban landscape as well as their potential to transform and improve public life. Though most of our grants are given to projects within our local San Francisco Bay Area, we are interested in funding inspiring endeavors both nationally and internationally.

Fellowships are granted to individuals creating inspiring work in the civic realm. Fellows include writers, architects, scholars, artists, designers, and film makers.
