One of our great joys is the people we work with. We are always impressed by their pioneering ideas and insistence on pushing boundaries. At this time of thanks-giving, we are so grateful for our inspiring partners in the Arts, Education, and Health.
To our grantees and partners, we say—Thank you. Together, you are helping us build and bridge communities through art, seed bright futures for Oakland children, and solve questions to better understand chronic disease.
This year, we want to draw attention to the breakthrough moments of three people we are fortunate to support—researcher Gwendalyn Randolph, tutor Melvin Tamoro, and choreographer Jo Kreiter. These changemakers are forging new ways to tackle complex challenges. Watch their stories and see the lives they change—sometimes in the space of a single moment.

We celebrate this creative thinking, risk-taking, and collaboration—traits embraced by all of our partners and grantees. Today, and always, we honor your dedication to moving us toward a better future. We look forward to learning and sharing more of your stories in 2018.
