New Economic Opportunity Grant Round Kicks Off

opportunity-ahead-signWe’re excited to kick off the much-anticipated Economic Opportunity & Employment Grant Round on January 12. Elena Chávez Quezada, Senior Program Officer for Economic Security at the Walter & Elise Haas Fund, will share an overview of this sector and perspective on possible areas of focus for the Round. At the conclusion of this meeting, Partners will vote to select a sub-topic focus for the Round. The Economic Opportunity & Employment Grant Round will be led by Partners Paru Yusuf and Shalyn Eason, and will meet every two to four weeks on Thursdays from 11:30am-1:30pm, January through May 2017.

This sector was chosen in response to significant interest expressed in the 2016 SV2 All-Partner Survey. This focus on developing economic opportunity in the Bay Area is especially timely with the recent release of The Giving Code report.

We hope you’ll join us! RSVP now to attend the kickoff meeting on January 12. When you RSVP, you will be also subscribed to the my.SV2 Community for this Round. If you’re interested in this topic but cannot come on January 12, please email Jody at to be subscribed.
