Inspiration. Community. Leadership.
Northern California Grantmakers (NCG) is an association of foundations, corporate contributions programs and other private and public grantmakers. Building on an initiative started in 1965 to exchange ideas, improve cooperation among foundations, and increase their knowledge of community problems, NCG has now grown to support the activity of approximately 160 grantmaking organizations and individuals, with combined grantmaking of more than $3 billion annually. NCG's work has resulted in an infrastructure that supports a robust professional community that continues to seek common standards, accepted modes of practice, and leadership for the field.
The NCG community has adopted The Effectiveness and Accountability Principles to promote greater awareness and stimulate vibrant, healthy discourse among NCG members about good governance and practice. We ask all new members to review the Principles, as your participation as a member of NCG demonstrates a commitment to these shared values.
As you explore the many benefits of joining the NCG community, we invite you to participate in programs and events as our guest for a limited amount of time. Please contact Barbara Camacho, Member Services Associate at 415.777.4111 ext. 28 or at bcamacho[at]ncg[dot]org for more information or with any inquiries.
