Volunteer With Us

EBC believes that what you water grows. That's why it mobilizes everyday people to build power and prosperity in community.
 
Powered by volunteer leadership, the EBC Fundraising Committee strengthens EBC’s work by identifying, organizing and expanding financial and other resources in support of its mission. The Committee is seeking the partnership of people who feel inspired by EBC’s mission, and who are eager to share their time, talent and networks to support its work. The Committee organizes its work around peer to peer campaigns, donor engagement and research and sponsorships. Volunteer energy is welcomed for task-bounded, time specific work as well as ongoing engagement. You are encouraged to join the monthly EBC fundraising Committee meetings held on the last Tuesday evening of every month.*
*There will be no fundraising committee meeting the next couple of months due to our organizational move to Restore Oakland. Meetings will resume in June.
