For 24 hours on May 3, 2016 you can make a big difference for Oakland by donating to Keep Oakland Beautiful (KOB) through East Bay Gives. https://eastbaygives.org/npo/keep-oakland-beautiful
From 7 – 8 pm East Bay Gives will give an additional $2,500 to a non-profit participating for the first time with the most donations received in this hour, so this gives you an opportunity to expand your impact.
Contributions will support KOB’s small grant program, which provides $500-$800 grants to citizens and community groups to clean and beautify their own small section of Oakland. Projects have included neighborhood park makeovers, median strip beautification and mosaic projects.
