Many of our 1,400+ Oakland Promise college scholars are undergoing tremendous financial challenges due to campus closures. For many students this means getting displaced from their housing, loss of income, losing access to computers, internet and other learning resources, and needing to get home quickly to be with and care for their families. Donate to the Dreamcatcher Fund, our emergency financial support to ensure that their college dream does not become a dream deferred, even in this challenging moment.
