Our mission is to connect change-agents with the resources they need to create positive social, environmental, and economic impact. We believe that the Mission District in San Francisco can and should become a model for equitable and sustainable development as our beloved San Francisco neighborhood continues to face rapid changes of the 21st century. We look forward to connecting people, hosting productive conversations, and doing impactful work that acheives cultural and economic prosperity for all who live and work in the Mission.
This page is a resource center for our Mission community and neighbors. We look forward to getting to know you and being of positive service to you. If you have any questions, please contact our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Impact Hub San Francisco Team
IMPACT HUB SF IN THE MISSION
OUR BACKGROUND STORY
Impact Hub was founded in 2009 with a desire to convene community that wanted business and social impact to do things differently. We began in a small, temporary space at the corner of 22nd and Mission Street before moving to our first permanent home at 901 Mission Street in the San Francisco Chronicle Building in SOMA. For 7+ years, we built a community of 800+ local members working for positive social, environmental, and economic impact.
OUR HOME AT 1885 MISSION ST
In 2016, we signed a lease to move into our new home at 1885 Mission Street, an historically socially-minded building; former tenants include Walden House and Rainbow Grocery. We have 3 floors, almost 25,000 sq ft, and an outdoor area. Impact Hub provides community space and event space, as well as 5 meeting rooms and more than 20 office spaces. Similar to Impact Hubs all over the world, we hope to be a bustling hub of activity in which our community can connect, work, and be inspired.
OUR ROLE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Impact Hub recognizes and appreciates the significance of any development in the Mission District today and the impact it has on local residents. We aim to become a fully-integrated member of the Mission neighborhood and provide the diverse community that lives and works in this area with equitable access to the services that we offer as a socially-responsible, certified B Corporation. By patronizing local businesses, providing work space and supporting nonprofits and community-serving individuals and organizations, we look forward to supporting the Mission on all levels.
COMMUNITY BENEFITS AGREEMENT
In anticipation of a May move to 1885 Mission St., Impact Hub signed a Community Benefits Agreement with members of the Mission Community. This agreement outlines a strategy which ensures the community, programming, and work of the Impact Hub reflect the diversity of the Mission, support engagement with the traditional working-class residents of the Mission, and contribute to the economic opportunities and stabilization of its residents and culture.
