On November 28th OpenOakland will be joining a national day of generosity, #GivingTuesday. Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a single day when communities come together to support the causes that matter most to them. It’s also a day when you can make a big impact on OpenOakland and help ensure that technology serves everyone in our community. We want to continue our great projects and events and find new innovative ways to serve our community. But we can’t do it without help from our community.
If you participate in holiday giving, please consider supporting OpenOakland. As a volunteer-run organization with no paid staff, every dollar we raise goes directly towards projects and events. Even a modest gift can bring us much closer to our goals! You can donate below through the Code For America donation page.
Your generous gift will support our renewed efforts to connect to all of Oakland through hosting weekly community meetings, as well as events like CityCamp and the National Day of Civic Hacking. Your donation funds:
- Pizza we offer our volunteers at our weekly community meetings
- Name tags, paper pads and other basic materials used at our meetings
- Hosting for OpenOakland.org and other projects’ Web sites
- Business cards and Stickers
- Basic resources used for annual events like CityCamp, National Day of Civic Hacking and other outreach activities
Equipment Wish List:
- Projector and screen
If you prefer to write a check, make it out to OpenOakland and give it to one of our Steering Committee members at our weekly meetings. If you’d like to mail your check, send us an email for an address, or to explore other ways to sponsor us.
Otherwise, use the Donate button above – which will take you to Code for America’s Donate page where OpenOakland will be pre-populated to make sure the funds are earmarked for us. Thank you!
