Stabilizing nonprofits in a 

changing real estate market

The Nonprofit Sustainability Initiative helps San Francisco’s nonprofits secure new, nonprofit-owned space and creates solutions for organizations seeking long-term leases. The initiative includes two new programs — the Nonprofit Space Investment Fund and the Nonprofit Space Stabilization Program. The programs provide technical and financial assistance to support nonprofit sustainability amidst a changing, and volatile, real estate market.


NCCLF is partnering with San Francisco’s Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development, Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development, and the Arts Commission.
