Checking In with Tandem, Partners in Early Learning: Perspectives on NonProfit Displacement in the San Francisco Bay Area

January 10, 2018

A year an a half ago, we launched a blog series called Should We Stay or Should We Go? Perspectives on Nonprofit Displacement in the San Francisco Bay AreaWe spoke with nonprofit, foundation, city government and business leaders about the Bay Area's rapidly rising real estate market, and its impact on the social sector. Now, we are checking in with Tandem, Partners in Early Learning, an organization which took part in the original series. Tandem had to relocate due to rising rent costs at their former office space; real estate is a constant consideration for their organization, and has even impacted the way they approach grantseeking. We checked in with Tandem's executive director, Molly Wertz, and development director, Julie Barton.
