The San Francisco Foundation, in collaboration with National Community Development Institute, has launched a new directory of San Francisco Bay Area capacity builders of color. This database includes all kinds of consultants and technical assistance providers of color, many of whom specialize in working in low-income communities and communities of color. The directory was created to help community-based organizations, nonprofits, and foundations find consultants of color and to assist local consultants of color in marketing their services in the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors.
My favorite feature of the website is the Specialty Search. Using this function, you can find consultants who specialize in everything from community organizing to health and technology. This directory is a much-needed resource, so get the word out to your friends and colleagues. If you or someone you know would like to be added to the database or have comments and suggestions about the database, please provide feedback using the ‘Contact Us’ link on the database website.
