Welcome to OaklandIn March, a team of Rockwood staff ran in the Oakland Running Festival and raised over $2,500 to create the Changing the Way Change is Run Scholarship Fund. The Fund will help more Oakland social change leaders attend Rockwood’s Art of Leadership training.

In 2014, we will award our first Changing the Way Change is Run Scholarships to two Oakland nonprofit and social change leaders whose work serves boys and men of color.

Rockwood is honored to be able to support more leaders who are working towards changing the historical and systematic causes of disparities like these:

Rockwood loves having its home in Oakland where we are neighbors with hundreds of social change organizations doing amazing work. We often cross paths with alums walking around Lake Merritt, in coffee shops, and at events. Rockwood’s Board of Directors has deep roots in the city, and the majority of our staff lives in Oakland. While our work extends nationally, we are deeply invested in our Oakland community.

Please spread the word about this opportunity to your friends and colleagues. Thank you!
