Since 1996, San Francisco-based Community Initiatives has been supporting community projects, ideas, and partnerships with fiscal sponsorship. With the support of shared 501(c)3 status, and back office services like financial management, human resources, and grant management, sponsored projects can focus on what matters most—delivering public good to communities.

October Featured Project: Mission Science Workshop

The Mission Science Workshops are bilingual community science centers that provide hands-on science enrichment activities to underserved youth from low-income communities, their schools and families. Neighborhood workshops provide informal spaces for children to participate in experiments, tinkering and construction programs that create authentic learning experiences. This month the organization is celebrating 25 years of service! To honor the organization’s anniversary, the City of San Francisco has declared Thursday, October 27, Mission Science Workshop Day, and is hosting the 25th Anniversary Community Gala at the San Francisco City Hall! Last school year Mission Science Workshop provided services to 10,000 students and over half of these services were free. The Gala will raise funds to keep services free or low-cost and to expand outreach. For a complete Event Page and to buy tickets, visit the organization’s website! facebook
