Good Ventures awarded a grant of $300,000 over three years to the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC) for general support. TNDC provides affordable housing and services for low-income people in the Tenderloin and throughout San Francisco, to promote equitable access to opportunity and resources. We made this grant as part of our support of housing affordability in San Francisco. Based on conversations with TNDC and other local planning leaders, we perceive TNDC to be a capable and well-respected organization focused on affordable housing.
We are interested in housing affordability in San Francisco because it’s a salient local issue and because we feel it’s important for San Francisco to continue to grow while remaining as affordable as possible. Furthermore, because we are based in San Francisco, we are well suited to participate in — and learn from — discussions of local policy.
