Rebuilding OAKLAND Black Businesses

Donation protected
Thank you for visiting our fundraising campaign, Who are we and what are we asking from the community? 

We are SoOakland LLC, a respected Oakland,Ca  based community events organization that has been around for 5 years. We are putting our efforts together to help rebuild, and clean up Black businesses that have been looted, vandalized, and affected by the recent protest. 

This is a time that we need the community to come together and show your love for the people, and the businesses that have added light, and value to the beautiful community of Oakland. WE NEED YOUR HELP

We have set the goal for $5,000 to help as many businesses as we can, but if we can do more that would be great. These businesses have not only been hit with the unfortunate financial setbacks from Covid-19, but now have been hit even harder from the protest.
We ask that you donate whatever you can, so that we can start the rebuilding process (replacing broken windows, inventory, removal of spray paint etc)

How will these funds be allocated?

-We will ask each business owner what specific assistances they need for their business.

-We will distribute funds directly to these businesses.

-Each business will receive donation amounts anywhere from $500-$2000 a piece, depending on needs

-Every business we donate to will be an Oakland based Black business ONLY.   

-We will post a list of all businesses, via our website  and social media(ig:sooakland)  that received funds, to show where your amazing donations have gone too. 

We have a website and application process for those businesses that qualify, click link below to see qualifications.

 We love you all and appreciate your support in marching with us. Thank you for showing up, and fighting back against police brutality. It takes a village, and we need our village to protect each other, and we will help as many of you as we can
