      About Full Circle Fund
      Over the past three years, Full Circle Fund has been built by emerging
      business leaders who were drawn to a comprehensive, results-oriented model
      for addressing community problems. In seeking to understand the root
      of social issues, we were forced to go beyond traditional approaches to
      philanthropy and work with leaders across sectors to create innovative
      solutions. Many people are too busy to think about philanthropy, let alone
      analyze root causes of social issues. Some have wanted to give back but
      not had a chance to do the necessary due diligence on organizations with
      which they might want to get involved. Still others have had little
      interaction with the organizations they do support. Finally, some lack
      knowledge about community issues and the strategies being employed to
      resolve the problem.

      Armed with an understanding of social issues, Full Circle Members partner
      with local organizations and pursue multiple strategies to solve public
      problems. Our innovative non-profit partners in the Bay Area and New York
      City receive funding and strategic support via a Members team whose skills
      reflect needs of the grantee organization. This model ensures that
      have both the financial and human capital they need to build successful

      Full Circle Fund is a 501c(3) tax-exempt organization. A local Board of
