Established in 1997, the Charles A. Becker Foundation was created to continue the benevolent spirit of its founder, who cared about and supported child and youth causes throughout his life.

CABF aims its financial support to direct-benefit charitable youth programs and organizations primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area.  CABF leans-in to education opportunities for kids in the middle (between advanced and at-risk), favoring programs that noticeably help develop: self-confidence, health and wellness, personal integrity, empowerment, and purposeful fulfillment.  A primary goal is to support initiatives that increase self-belief in the importance of graduation, with an emphasis to philanthropically invest in high-impact, high-value projects that help develop individuals to thrive.
