Greater San Francisco

Kaiser Permanente’s Greater San Francisco service area includes the City and County of San Francisco and the northern part of San Mateo County and is served by the San Francisco and South San Francisco medical centers.

In addition to providing affordable health care and coverage for its members and patients, Kaiser Permanente engages the communities it serves with a variety of resources, including grants to address identified health needs, donations, sponsorships to support community partner events and activities, in-kind donations, and volunteers.

Community Health Needs Assessment

The Kaiser Permanente 2020-2022 Community Health Needs Assessment reports for the San Francisco and South San Francisco medical centers reflect Kaiser Permanente’s long-standing commitment to addressing the most urgent social needs and community conditions to improve total health for all. To view the Community Health Needs Assessments for each Kaiser Foundation Hospital and submit comments, please visit the Kaiser Permanente Community Health Needs Assessments web page.


Kaiser Permanente provides financial support to local nonprofit health and human services organizations with an emphasis on helping underserved communities. Grant requests must address at least one of the priority health needs identified in the medical center’s latest Community Health Needs Assessment. 

Top funding priorities for the Greater San Francisco Service Area:

  1. Access to Care
  2. Behavioral Health
  3. Housing and Homelessness
  4. Healthy Eating Active Living

Each year’s competitive grant solicitation also includes specific strategies and expected outcomes that must be the focus of the application to be considered for funding.

In 2020, there will be one grant solicitation for San Francisco City and County and a separate solicitation for all of San Mateo County. North San Mateo County organizations, please see the Redwood City page for the San Mateo County Grant Application Guide.
