Tipping Point fights poverty in the Bay Area. We screen non-profits rigorously to identify and invest in the most effective education, employment, housing, and early childhood development organizations. Once in our portfolio, Tipping Point grantees have access to unrestricted funds and risk capital, and receive assistance in critical areas like communications, strategy, legal services and technology. In addition, Tipping Point looks for opportunities to partner with the public sector to leverage its impact for the common good. Since 2005, Tipping Point has raised more than $150 million and in the last year alone, helped put 23,000 people on the path out of poverty. Our Board covers 100% of our operating costs, so every dollar donated goes where it’s needed most.
