About Us

Local impact, globally.

Systems 17 is a place to find and support positive social and environmental impact happening in your community. In this case, the San Francisco Bay Area. Our mission is to reinvent how changemakers communicate impact, tell their stories, and inspire their audiences to act. We believe that local engagement makes all the difference. Small acts combined can shift systems. It is not just the big, but also the bold that create positive change. We encourage you to support local grassroots organizations because they are close to the people and environments they help.

Community-based nonprofits do important work in racial & institutional justice, LGBTQ+ & gender equality, climate action & environment, animal welfare, education & local economy, and basic necessities. Unfortunately, they also struggle to stand out and be seen.
