Tipping Point Community is a non-profit organization committed to fighting poverty in the San Francisco Bay Area for the individuals and families too poor to meet their basic needs. We support the development of new poverty-fighting solutions by providing grantees with the risk capital and tools needed to think big. We connect grantees with best-in-class pro bono partners to provide services and expertise that many groups could not access on their own. We collaborate with the public sector to leverage our impact and create scalable change.
