Youth-Serving Nonprofits in Two Oakland Neighborhoods Merge

Facing funding cuts to their programs, the East Bay Asian Youth Center and Oakland Asian Students Educational Services⁠—youth service and community development organizations that served diverse minority and immigrant populations in Oakland’s San Antonio and Chinatown neighborhoods, respectively⁠—decided to merge. The due diligence process for the merger found several benefits of merging the entities including cost savings through administrative consolidation, improved fundraising through a reallocation of resources, and creation of a continuum of programs for their clients. The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund provided a challenge grant to support one-time costs related to the merger.
