SUPPORT OUR SAN FRANCISCO COMMUNITY
San Francisco’s Civic Bridge creates a collaborative space for City staff and private-sector experts to join forces and tackle critical government challenges together. Their pro bono program matches teams of company volunteers with City Departments to work on well-scoped projects. Teams work part-time over 16 weeks to help create tangible solutions to real challenges. If your organization is interested in expanding your employee volunteering opportunities or you want to lead an employee team with your employer for the next cohort, please fill out the program interest form by Friday, July 2.
