In The Community
Oakland opened its doors in 1997 adopting the credo “Making the difference in communities and organizations.” A recipient of college scholarships from his local church and the local chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, which he pledged upon entering University, Cedric Nash has since conveyed this same sense of community responsibility into the company culture.
Oakland has continued this tradition of giving and, in 1998, the company funded and established a 30-computer laboratory for the Fremont High School Business Academy in Oakland and a community based computer laboratory for at-risk youth in Seaside, CA. Oakland continues to provide annual donations for the continuation of these programs. Additionally, Oakland pledges a percentage of its annual earnings to local inner city public schools designated for the purchase of new computer hardware and software for students.
Scholarships and Other Community Support
Oakland donates annually to the Alpha Phi Alpha Scholarship and contributes money and equipment to local County schools, and to numerous charities and other philanthropic organizations including the Monterey Community Choir and the Greater Victory Temple Church Scholarship, Girl Scouts and after school programs.
Oakland personnel are encouraged to make a direct impact on future leaders through mentorship. Leading by example, Mr. Nash meets monthly with a group of young men to provide coaching in all areas of personal development, goal-setting and financial planning. Mr. Nash demystifies the idea of entrepreneurship by sharing with them his own personal experiences and challenges as a business owner.
Oakland has an annual commitment to doing hands-on local community service as a team. The entire Oakland staff dedicates time each quarter to perform an act of service for the local community. Most recently the Oakland staff worked as a team to help out at the Capital Area Food Bank where our personnel sorted several tons of food into categories for distribution to the needy throughout the Washington region.
