Second PVF Location opened in San Mateo County

Tackling the inequality gap through grassroots collaboration

Come visit us in our San Mateo County location centrally located on the 4th floor at the new WeWork building (400 Concar, San Mateo – free parking in the garage; located near the train station off Hwy 92 and Delaware).

We opened our new location on February 1, 2019. We are getting feedback and ideas on how this location can be a magnet for change and a catalyst for more resources and services. This WeWork building opened in December, and a membership allows one to work at any of the WeWork sites. A community manager is on-site to promote opportunities for members to meet, network and create a culture of connectedness.

The Giving Code, a report produced by Alexa Cortes Culwell and Heather McLeod Grant, called for new models for cross-sector collaboration to bridge the gap and connect nonprofits and donors – especially new entrepreneurs.  Their report suggested new models can create opportunities to learn from each other, and to learn together about local issues and solutions.

We have been able to take a leap into creating an opportunity to bridge this gap through a generous donation from one of our donors to open this new office. We are very excited to connect entrepreneurs and businesses with nonprofits and create opportunities for involvement in the community. We plan to sponsor social events with guest speakers for the purpose of building connections and community, and getting people involved. You will be invited to join us so watch for our announcements!
