Strategic Plan

The Oakland Fund for Children and Youth (OFCY) strategic plan guides OFCY's funding priorities for OFCY's three year grant cycle. The plan implements the four goals of OFCY's authorizing legislation, Measure D, KidsFirst!. The plan provides a needs assessment of Oakland's children and youth and an overview of four strategy areas. 

2019-2022 Strategic Investment Plan

The Planning and Oversight Committee and OFCY staff are developing the strategic investment plan for 2019-2022 with input from Oakland's youth, parents, service providers, and key stakeholders. OFCY is aiming to have a new plan developed in Spring 2018 and adopted by City Council in summer 2018. As materials are developed and events begin to be planned, more information will be made available here on the OFCY website. 

OFCY Strategic Plan - Final Community Cafe & Strategy Showcase Event

OFCY will host two additional events to engage parents, youth, families and community members on how best to benefit Oakland's children and youth through funding from the Oakland Fund for Children and Youth. The final Community Café will be held on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 (4pm-6pm) at the West Oakland Library (1801 Adeline Street). It will focus on Arts, Enrichment and Neighborhood Safety but community input does not need to be limited to these topics.

A strategy showcase event will take place on Thursday May 24, 2018 (5pm-7pm) at Oakland City Hall (1 Frank Ogawa Plaza, Hearing Room 3) to share draft strategies with the public and receive feedback from the community. These events are co-sponsored and co-hosted by the Oakland Youth Advisory Commission (OYAC), and will help inform the youth commissioners and OFCY's Planning and Oversight Committee on needs and priorities in Oakland. Food and refreshments will be provided at both meetings! For more information, please contact Program Planner Mike Wetzel at or 510-238-3242.
