On December 8, 2022, more than 300 community members attended this live virtual event to welcome EBCF’s new president & CEO Brandi Howard. During the event, Brandi spoke with Valerie Red-Horse Mohl, EBCF’s Chief Financial Officer, about her childhood in Oakland and how it has shaped her perspective on the role of philanthropy, and about the role of community foundations in a time of unprecedented community crisis. The event also featured a series of warm welcomes from community leaders, EBCF donors, board members, and partners.

In this virtual event, community members learned more about Brandi and EBCF’s strategic vision for A Just East Bay.

The Campaign for A Just East Bay is a multi-year annual campaign. Dollars donated to the Campaign support all of EBCF’s core work towards A Just East Bay. This includes sector-leading innovations in philanthropy, EBCF’s impact investing work, and, of course, EBCF’s pooled fund for strategic grantmaking to support social movement leaders.
