With our Oakland City Fund, NewSchools seeks to double the number of high quality seats in the city by leveraging the power of community engagement and entrepreneurship to ensure all students in the city have access to excellent public schools.

The Oakland Fund strategy is comprised of three pillars:

  • High Quality Schools: Add 10,000 high quality seats by the year 2020

  • Talent: Make Oakland into a talent magnet by attracting and preparing new teachers and principals

  • Community: Build a coalition of aligned community organizations and leaders

Launched in January 2013, the Oakland Fund will operate for seven years.
