The Stupski Foundation primarily funds organizations in San Francisco and Alameda Counties and Hawaiʻi that address Food Security, Postsecondary Success, Early Brain Development, and Serious Illness Care.  Between 2016 and 2017, the Foundation focused on what to address in each issue area. In 2018, it focused on creating an initial set of strategies within each issue area.

The Foundation is also embarking upon an equity advancement process and seeks candidates who are committed to equity and who are eager to help us build our organizational culture.
