CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FROM A TO Z

The A to Z Fund does two big things for all Oakland public schools: gives our teachers extra training to become even better, and distributes money to school leaders to use for camping trips, music sports, and other underfunded opportunities from A to Z.

A TO Z FUND MINI-GRANTS

Calling all Oakland public school teachers and staff! We are offering mini-grants of up to $1,500 for your dream projects. Learn more and apply here by February 15, 2017!

THE NEED

The need for equity is clear. Fourteen schools, concentrated in Oakland’s wealthiest neighborhoods, raised more than $4 million in one school year. Meanwhile, 75 percent of Oakland students attended a school that raised less than $10,000 that same year.

 

We believe kids who come to school with less need more. While every Oakland public school will benefit from the A to Z Fund, we will distribute more money to schools with the most students who are low-income, English language learners, or in foster care.
