The San Francisco Bay Area Council (SFBAC) is a council of the Boy Scouts of America, formed by a merger of the San Francisco Area and Oakland Area Councils in February 1964.[1] Located in the San Francisco Bay Area, serving the cities of Colma, Daly City (northern section), San Francisco, Emeryville, Oakland, San Leandro, Hayward, Fremont, Union City, Newark, Pleasanton, Dublin, and Livermore, as well as unincorporated communities such as Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, and Sunol.

Headquartered in San Leandro (1001 Davis Street), the council surrounds both the Piedmont and Alameda Councils. SFBAC is one of the six councils that serves the San Francisco Bay area.[2]

In June 1916, the Oakland-Piedmont Council (#021) was chartered, changing its name in 1921 to the Oakland Area Council after Piedmont elected to organize their own council. In January 1917, the San Francisco Council (#051) was chartered, changing its name in 1924 to the San Francisco Area Council.[3]
