What We Fund

The OFCY funds many different programs that provide direct services to children and youth, ages 0-21,  throughout the city of Oakland. OFCY uses 90% of funds for grants for direct services for Oakland children and youth, and 10% for administration including staffing, evaluation, grant management and strategic planning. We work with individual agencies as well as collaborations of public and non-profit partners. Programs currently funded by OFCY focus on the four legislative goals of Measure D:


1.      Support the healthy development of young children

2.      Help children and youth succeed in school and graduate high school

3.      Prevent and reduce violence, crime and gang involvement among children

4.      Help youth transition to a productive adulthood
