Rubicon on SFGate

July 2016

The Hearst Foundations awarded $725,000 worth of grants to nine Bay Area organizations this summer for their work spanning a wide gamut from mentoring programs for children in low-income communities to aiding the construction of an experimental learning ship.

The biggest awards, $150,000 each, were given to Richmond’s Rubicon Programs, to support education and employment programming, and the San Francisco Film Society, to strengthen education programming for youth.
