Empowering Manufacturers. Creating Jobs. Transforming our City.
SFMade is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports local manufacturers who create jobs and career pathways for local residents who have overcome barriers to employment for a more vibrant, equitable, and resilient economy.
Founded in 2010, SFMade has emerged as a full-service hub that connects low-income job seekers to employment and training opportunities; provides local manufacturers with educational resources and customized, one-on-one services; and arms policymakers with strategies and intelligence to create the conditions for home-grown manufacturers and their employees to thrive.
At the heart of SFMade’s work is the belief that local manufacturing taps into the unique identity and spirit of the city and the region, and an economy that prioritizes the workers, entrepreneurs, and artisans who make things has the potential for greater social and environmental impact.
From bringing manufacturers into high school classrooms and creating internships to provide early exposure to the field, to creating the region’s first and only nonprofit industrial space real estate development company, SFMade is working constantly to help manufacturers flourish and to ensure low-income residents have access to jobs with wages that keep up with the cost of living.
