Donate to Support Oakland Kids
KEEPING OUR KIDS SAFE & HEALTHY DURING COVID-19 CRISIS
APRIL 15, 2020 UPDATE
- So far, we have raised over $1.4 Million!
- 15 Foundations and 800 individual donors combined for this extraordinary show of support to our students and families.
- With the extended closure, the need is much greater and we must continue to do all we can to support our students and community.
Due to the unprecedented COVID-19 health crisis, all of our public schools - which serve almost 37,000 students - are closed through the end of the school year.
As a full service community school district, our schools are hubs of opportunity in neighborhoods across the city. We value our partners and collaborate to meet the needs of our students and their families. We are committed to doing all we can to provide some continuity of education and provide basic needs and services during this challenging and uncertain time. Our focus will be on our students and neighborhoods most in need.
Our extraordinary educators and staff are working tirelessly to ensure all students will continue to have access to healthy food and supplies, to provide meaningful at-home and online learning opportunities, and to prepare schools for everyone’s safe return. However, our current needs outweigh our resources.
In partnership with the Oakland Public Education Fund, we launched a “COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund for Oakland Kids & Schools”. Our goal is to rapidly respond to the crisis on behalf of all public school students and adults, and particularly for those who are most vulnerable.
