All Good Work Foundation, a nonprofit social responsibility program for the coworking and flexible space industry, is already making 2020 a year to remember.
The Foundation, which launched in 2016, matches social impact organizations with donated workspace in the local area. The program started in New York City and in 2018, spread to Silicon Valley. Now, having gained significant support from donors and coworking spaces in the Bay Area, All Good Work has expanded its program to San Francisco.
Regus, Canopy, Covo, Eco-Systm, Focus Innovation Studio, The Hivery, OnePiece Work, SOMAcentral, and Starfish Mission have all generously donated workspace to the new San Francisco program, with more participants expected to join in the coming weeks.
Even before its official launch, a number of social impact organizations have been matched with workspace in the city.
New program Residents include Replate, a local food rescue; Redbird, a healthcare provider; There With Care, which supports local families and children facing critical illness; and Predictably Well, a social enterprise that supports women struggling with autoimmune diseases.
All Good Work will mark its official launch in San Francisco with an event on Monday, March 2, 2020, taking place at Regus (201 Mission Street), one of the workspace Hosts.
The event is an opportunity for local social impact organizations, coworking operators, and members of the public and private sector to learn more about the Residency program and how it benefits the local community. Speakers include:
- Lex Leifheit, Senior Business Development Manager, San Francisco Office of Economic and Workforce Development
- Jim Doorn, Executive Vice President, Western United States, IWG plc International Workplace Group
- Sara Frankfurth, Director of Regional Programs and Partnerships, Northern California Grantmakers
- Sara Alexander, Executive Director, There With Care of the Bay Area
- Maen Mahfoud, Founder and CEO, Replate
The All Good Work team is led by co-founder Nate Heasley and Amy Feldman, Program Director for Silicon Valley and San Francisco.
“We’re very proud of the coworking operators in our program,” said Nate Heasley. “They are leading the way and showing that the coworking industry wants to support local community organizations by donating workspace.
“We’re excited to see this idea catch on in San Francisco, where nonprofits suffer some of the highest rates of displacement. We hope our program grows to include every coworking operator in the area, and eventually in the whole country.”
