We bring financial resources, support and technical assistance to creative
artists, for profit and non-profit small businesses in San Francisco.
LIFE IN THE ARTS provides direct services and support to up and coming creative artists helping them start and grow for profit and non profit businesses.
2-STEP provides technical assistance and resources for small nonprofits in need of grant funding, working collaboratively with clients to build capacity and successfully meet their goals.
Our hub provides UpSkill – a technical assistance and consulting program to help small, for profit businesses – micro enterprises, small businesses and entrepreneurs – start, stay/strengthen and grow their operations.
We welcome your interest in our city-wide programs. Some of our most important work – from our collaboration with SF Land Trust to preserve affordable housing, to our grant writing and technical support for 100+ small businesses, to the renovation of the Fillmore Mini Park and activation of the Fillmore Heritage Center, to our Life In The Arts collaborative project that promotes city-wide unity and economic empowerment – has been a result of community participation.
