This year’s Best of the East Bay Party will not only have great live entertainment, food, and drinks—but every time you buy a drink from the bar, the proceeds will go to OneCalifornia Foundation! OneCalifornia Foundation, located in downtown Oakland, is a local 501c3 non-profit organization that focuses on building our local economy as a whole, as well as building the individual financial strength of people, organizations, and businesses here.
OneCal Foundation helps local individuals and families earn, keep, save, and manage money, and is creating alternatives to lenders and check cashers that charge exorbitant fees to primarily low-income members of our community.
The foundation also helps Oakland’s independent businesses sell online at OaklandUnwrapped.com, and helps Bay Area businesses improve their marketing, participate in promotional events and opportunities, and find local classes and consultants they need to grow their businesses.
Finally, OneCal Foundation also owns OneCalifornia Bank, FSB, a community bank that is helping Oakland and the Bay Area take the economy and our finances back into our own hands!
