Date:12/8/2009

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Tipping Point Community, a charitable organization dedicated to preventing poverty in the Bay Area, announced a $1 million donation from the Sergey Brin and Anne Wojcicki Foundation. Tuesday's donation was made at Tipping Point Community's Third Annual Awards Breakfast and is one of Tipping Point's largest donations to date.

In the Bay Area, one-quarter of families are too poor to meet their basic needs. "When it comes to poverty, it's too late for pessimism," said Tipping Point Founder and CEO, Daniel Lurie at the annual Tipping Point Awards Breakfast. "We thank Sergey and Anne for their generous donation, which will allow us to further our mission to break the cycle of poverty for good."

Each year, Tipping Point Community honors Bay Area organizations working to prevent poverty in the region. The three organizations honored this year are Homeless Prenatal Program, Canal Alliance and KIPP Bay Area Schools. Each organization received a grant of $50,000 from Tipping Point. Additional information on those honored is outlined below.

Martha Ryan, Founder + Executive Director, Homeless Prenatal Program

Homeless Prenatal Program helps 3,000 homeless San Francisco families per year access healthcare and provides comprehensive services to ensure that clients stabilize their families for the long-term.

"I had always thought I'd go back to Africa to help there, but there were so many women and children right here in San Francisco living without food, shelter and medical care; I couldn't help but help." -- Martha Ryan, Founder + Executive Director, HPP

Tom Wilson, Executive Director, Canal Alliance

Canal Alliance improves the lives of 3,000 low-income immigrant, working families in Marin County each year through education, case management and training for economic development.
