I'd like help researching what it looks like to become a fiscal sponsor for nonprofits. There are a number of POC-led projects that don't need to become 501c3s; should our nonprofit house them?
The Oakland Peace Center provides needed space, hosts collaborative events and trainings, and creates a network of emotional and spiritual support for the 30+ organizations who partner in its work. These organizations pursue access, opportunity, justice, and inner peace throughout the Bay Area each in their own way. They can turn to the Oakland Peace Center to fortify and amplify these efforts through solidarity and cross-pollination. The OPC inspires these organizations to participate in a vision larger than that of any individual or member organization.
We provide affordable space in the midst of the displacement crisis that particularly affects POC-led nonprofits. We do cultural preservation programming through the arts. We provide capacity-building support to small nonprofits. We amplify the work of our partner organizations so our community can engage in the work of ending violence with great organizations they might not know about otherwise.
