The Ghiberti Foundation

The Ghiberti Foundation (Tax ID 94-3402512) is the arts and culture foundation at Grace Cathedral. The Foundation seeks to inspire and enrich diverse communities through the arts, education and public conversation in collaboration with other cultural, educational and civic organizations.


Grace Cathedral is a significant mediating and unifying institution in the Bay Area, and The Ghiberti Foundation was organized to build on this role without reference to any denominational identity. The Cathedral Board of Trustees realizes that a secular foundation rather than the Cathedral itself, comprising individuals who represent the Bay Area’s diverse cultures, could best coordinate the non-religious programs at Grace Cathedral.

The Ghiberti Foundation and the Vision for Grace Cathedral

Grace Cathedral has long been San Francisco’s Cathedral, serving as a place of worship, hosting civic conversation and cultural events and providing a stunning venue to experience music and the arts. In 2001, Grace Cathedral’s board of trustees established the Ghiberti Foundation for arts and culture, coordinating many of the cathedral’s non-religious programs. The foundation seeks to inspire and enrich diverse communities through the arts, education, and public conversation in collaboration with other cultural, educational, and civic organizations.
