About Us

The Oakland Fund reaches across the city, engaging private partners to innovate, test and scale ideas that enhance Oakland. The Fund strives to improve the prosperity, safety and quality of life for all Oaklanders with projects that:


  • Build a more trustworthy and responsive government
  • Allow Oaklanders to stay rooted and thrive in our city
  • Create a more vibrant and connected Oakland for all who live, work and play here.


This approach is outlined in the Resilient Oakland playbook, a strategy document developed to help the City of Oakland tackle systemic and structural challenges. The Oakland Fund sponsors projects seeking innovative solutions in a collaborative environment, engaging public and private resources and delivering measurable results.

 

As mayoral administrations change, the Oakland Fund remains an independent and nonpartisan resource to help elected leaders focus on long-term goals that promote the wellbeing of Oaklanders.
