Support Oakland Unified School District Kids
The Glenview Neighborhood Association recommends support for Equity Allies/the Equity Fund for OUSD.
The Power of Giving
Thanks for including CatTown Oakland and Friends of Oakland Animal Services on the magazine’s 2019 recommended giving list [“The 2019 Guide to Charitable Giving,” December].
For many years, my neighborhood association, the Glenview Neighborhood Assocoation, has made modest donations each year to the Mayor’s Toy Drive and the PTA’s of Edna Brewer Middle School and Glenview Elementary School out of the GNA treasury/budget. This year, the GNA Board decided to increase our neighborhood’s giving power by encouraging neighbors to make individual donations to community nonprofits doing good work in the Glenview and/or across Oakland. We came across (and recommended) Equity Allies/the Equity Fund for OUSD, which is doing important equity and financial support work for OUSD students.
