Your donation provides critical resources

As an all-volunteer brigade, we operate as lean as we can. Your contributions help us create a more efficient, inclsuive volunteer program. Among other things, your generosity helps provide:

  • Web hosting and platform support for openoakland.org and other project sites.
  • Supplies for meetings, workshops, and design sessions.
  • Speaker honorariums to encourage diverse voices.
  • Research and testing supplies and incentives.
  • Diet-sensitive food for in-person events to reduce barriers for volunteers from different backgrounds.
  • Promotional collateral materials to raise awareness, increase program adoption, and thank our hard-working volunteer contributors.

Thank you!
