Established in 2008, Oakland Natives Give Back is a 21st Century community-based philanthropic hub that invests its resources in audacious, high impact initiatives. We address the most pressing social ills of the day by funding, creating, and incubating innovative programs, experiences and partnerships that empower the next generation of high-achieving citizens, locally and globally.

We strive to inspire and enable current and former Oaklanders to serve our beloved community. We see service as a means of connecting one’s own wellbeing to that of the people living around us.

As such, ONGB’s foundation is built on the notion that the world is interconnected and interdependent. The suffering of one inevitably impacts all of us. An act of kindness for one benefits all of us.
