Tipping Point’s mission is to break the cycle of poverty for people in the Bay Area who don’t have the resources to meet their basic needs.

Since 2005, Tipping Point has raised more than $260 million for housing, early childhood, education, and employment solutions in the region. Our board covers 100% of our operating costs, so every dollar donated goes where it’s needed most.

Last year, we helped more than 21,000 people connect to opportunities that break the cycle of poverty.
