Oakland Chinatown Chamber Foundation


The Oakland Chinatown Chamber Foundation (OCC Foundation) was formed in 2003 as a 501c3 charitable organization to accept donations towards projects that will benefit the welfare of business entities and residents in the Oakland Chinatown community through educational and cultural enrichment activities, as well as economic development endeavors. In addition, the Foundation was established to facilitate the collection of donations from businesses and individuals to benefit the community in time of emergencies and casualties.


We invite you to donate to the OCC Foundation now so that we can continue to make the Oakland Chinatown community thrive. Donations through the OCCC Foundation link below are tax deductible to the extent of the law. Our 501c3 FEIN is 37-1433643.
