DREAMCATCHER FUND: Keeping Our Promise To Oakland Students During The COVID-19 Pandemic

Oakland, and indeed the world, is tackling an issue of enormous scale and human impact. Our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. With campus closures, loss of employment, unexpected travel expenses, and housing complications, and food insecurity, our scholars are deeply affected by the challenges that are emerging. Many of our Scholars (college and technical school students) are first-generation students from low-income backgrounds, which makes the effects of school closures and lock down measures more deeply felt.

How You Can Help

You can help Oakland's most deserving students during this crisis. To keep Scholars' educational progress on track, Oakland Promise is working quickly to supply students with emergency funding through the Dreamcatcher Fund; the need is significant and we cannot do it alone. Your tax-deductible donation will keep our Oakland Scholars on a path to college and career success during this challenging time.

Every dollar makes a difference. Let's keep the Promise to Oakland's young people together!
