Helpful Hint: There are a number of buildings at different angles on Frank H. Ogawa Plaza that sometimes confuse first-time visitors trying to find us. Here’s a way to eliminate the confusion:

  1. Stand in front of the main entrance to Oakland City Hall with your back to the big Oak tree on the lawn.
  2. Turn your head to the right and you will see a seven-story brick building with green trim. On the facade of the third level are the words: “East Bay Community Foundation.”

And that is where we are.
