From promoting the Stimulus Pledge, to receiving and distributing your generous donations, we feel fortunate to have such amazing partners.
The Oakland Public Education Fund (OEF) has been partnering with Oakland schools since 2003.
OEF provides the Stimulus Pledge campaign the back office support and donation accounting necessary for the high degree of financial oversight needed when dealing with donations. While they do take a fee for their service, they provide systems and accounting to help ensure that all the funds donated reach the families in need.
Because OEF already knows and supports Oakland schools, we anticipate fewer bureaucratic issues when distributing funds to families.
Make your pledge today.
If you anticipate getting a check and can afford it, please pledge some or all of your comping stimulus check to prevent homelessness, hunger and illness for immigrant families.
