About Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment

For nearly 30 years, the Rose Foundation has supported grassroots initiatives that inspire community action to protect the environment, community health, and people’s rights. Our community-based grantmaking approach has earned national recognition for building grassroots power for conservation and social justice. Our New Voices Are Rising youth program trains Bay Area high school students to step forward as the next generation of environmental justice leaders. We have a staff of 17. Our physical office is located in Oakland’s Jack London Square, proximate to bike lanes and public transit.  Post-pandemic we envision a hybrid office environment that emphasizes flexibility and accommodates remote workstyles.
