THE STORY:

Strive for Change Foundation is conducting our first ever  SFCF Challenge!

Join us in our effort to raise $10,000 for The Stride Center, one of the many organizations we support that help the working poor in the East Bay move up and out of poverty! Help us reach our goal by June 30th and The Stride Center will receive an extra $5,000 from a generous donor!

The Stride Center Story

The Stride Center was created to help low income men and women who have struggled to support themselves and are motivated to try and make a change in their life to move up and out of poverty. 

Located in downtown Oakland, The Stride Center provides technology training and career support through an intensive series of 11 to 22 week courses that require grit, persistence and commitment. 

Watch this 4 minute video to learn how The Stride Center has helped others or go to stridecenter.org.

Strive For Change Foundation (SFCF), founded in 2004, identifies and raises funds for community-based organizations, like The Stride Center, to help the working poor in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. The organizations supported by SFCF provide job training, mentoring and job placement to low-income adults. All donations raised as part of the SFCF Challenge will be granted directly to The Stride Center. Learn more about other Strive for Change Foundation efforts via striveforchangefoundation.org.
