MORE About COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP 2004
The San Francisco Foundation recognizes individuals and organizations whose leadership makes a significant impact in Bay Area communities. This work may confront societal or civic issues, address health or environmental concerns, or promote arts and humanities.
For the past 12 years, Citizen Film has created short documentaries distilling these extraordinary stories into resonant documentary films. These productions premiere at the San Francisco Foundation’s annual Community Leadership Awards, an evening of food, fun and film for the entire Bay Area community. Organizations and their leaders then utilize those films for years as a way to communicate the need for and impact of their work.
