Full Circle Fund empowers communities in the Bay Area by connecting skilled professionals with local nonprofits. We believe that nonprofits are best equipped to identify the needs of their communities. Through partnership and collaboration, our volunteers leverage their expertise and resources to support these organizations in achieving their missions. Over the past 20 years, our volunteers have collectively given 100,000+ hours of their time to over 100 nonprofits. Many have even gone on to be leaders in their communities by joining nonprofit boards, running for public office and switching careers to nonprofits and foundations. Together, we can do more.

From our nonprofit engagements, to our volunteer teams, to our hiring – these values guide how we do the work:
We are empathetic.
We are committed.
We advocate for our communities.
We have fun!
