Bringing together more than 300 guests at the Scottish Rite Center, the Ed Fund’s annual gala is the city’s only event supporting all Oakland public schools. Featuring student performances, a live auction, and opportunities to connect with other community leaders, the gala is a glamorous evening that supports our A to Z Fund, which gives Oakland kids the opportunities and experiences—from art to field trips to music— they deserve.


Our 4th Annual Gala will be on Saturday, September 22, 2018—save the date! In the meantime, we invite you to relive past galas through our 3rd Annual photo album and our Exposure photo story recapping the 2nd Annual.
