Foundation donors enjoyed a gorgeous spring morning in Oakland’s Fruitvale Village on April 21! The wide pedestrian plazas running through the Village are a great place to sit and enjoy the sun. The Fruitvale Public Market opened in 2008 and supports 11 small businesses, including the very popular Churros Mexicanos.
On April 21, a group of foundation donors and professional advisors toured the Fruitvale Village in Oakland, meeting local nonprofit leaders and seeing first-hand how this vibrant community is thriving.
Our tour was led by Unity Council’s CEO Chris Iglesias. For more than 50 years, Unity Council has been committed to enriching the quality of life for Fruitvale families by helping them find quality jobs, safe community spaces, education and economic prosperity. Scan through the pictures below to see what our donors experienced and learned on the tour.
Place matters to the foundation, and we are planning more neighborhood tours in the near future, including one of several HOPE SF development sites on July 25. We hope to see you then! Please visit Donor Center for more details.
