Are you a development professional considering relocating to San Francisco? Or an implementing nongovernmental organization seeking grants for development projects in Asia or in the women empowerment sector?
San Francisco’s development community is busy, dynamic and diverse — reflecting the city’s vibrant cultural landscape and rich civil rights history. Offices of different grant-making foundations, nonprofits, consultancies and research firms dot the iconic rolling hills, with many situated within only a few miles of each other.
The organizations operate across a range of sectors, including education, youth empowerment, health, poverty reduction and economic empowerment, regional cooperation, women’s rights, governance and law, strategic philanthropy, sustainable energy, and clean technology.
Located not far from the world’s leading tech hub, Silicon Valley, San Francisco will be playing host to the 2016 World Agri-Tech Investment Summit, which aims to accelerate the adoption of sustainable, resource-efficient agricultural technologies through partnership formation and knowledge sharing. The city also served as the venue for last June’s Growing the Impact Economy Summit, which focused on leveraging for-benefit enterprise and cross-sector leadership and cooperation to tackle complex social, economic and environmental challenges.
