Disruption and Diversity: Using Capital to Combat Displacement and Gentrification

The Bay Area, driven by the tech economy, has become a symbol of disruption and dynamism. The region’s economic engine is attracting jobs and spurring speculation, but this transformation is reshaping the geography into a sprawling mega-region marked by displacement and inequality. Steeply rising housing costs push out and exclude low-income residents, fundamentally changing the culture of the region. More than 60% of low income households in the region are experiencing or at risk of displacement.

Strong community organizers are at the front lines of this transformation, and the philanthropic community has historically supported their efforts with grantmaking dollars. How can we leverage more diverse sources of capital and increase investment in one of our most challenging social problems?

Join Confluence Philanthropy and Northern California Grantmakers for a deep conversation about the role of strategic investments in combatting displacement, from collaborative grantmaking to market rate investments. We will learn from on-the-ground organizers, experienced grantmakers and community-driven development initiatives about the needs and opportunities for investing in a diverse and equitable Bay Area.

 

Speakers include:

Craig Adelman, Managing Director-SPARCC Initiative, LIIF

Gloria Bruce, Executive Director, East Bay Housing Organizations

Alexandra Desautels, Program Manager-Strategy Development and Dissemination, The California Endowment

Sarah Frankfurth, Manager-Collaborative Philanthropy, Northern California Grantmakers

Elizabeth Wampler, Initiative Officer-Great Communities Collaborative, San Francisco Foundation
