Ways To Give

By Check: Please make checks payable to Oakland School for the Arts and send them to:  Advancement Office, Oakland School for the Arts, 530 18th Street, Oakland CA 94612. 

By Credit Card: To make a donation via credit card please use our secure online giving page.

Recurring Gifts: Automatic, recurring monthly or quarterly donations via credit card are possible via our secure online giving page. You may also mail in monthly or quarterly donation checks to the Advancement Office. Email Advancement at advancement@oakarts.org if you would like to set up pledge installments!

Payroll Deduction: Some employers offer the option of payroll deduction donations as part of their corporate community giving programs, and some of OSA's donors prefer this method. Contact your Human Resources department if this sounds like an option that works best for you.

Automatic Check Withdrawals: Some OSA donors prefer to set up automatic withdrawals from their bank account, where their bank mails the check to OSA. Contact your Bank if this option works best for you. Note: As of now, OSA does not accept Direct Debit. 

Matching Gifts: If you or your spouse work for or retired from a company that offers matching gifts you may be able to double, or even triple, your donation to OSA. Contact your Human Resources department to find out if your company will match your or your spouse’s gift.

By Appreciated Securities/Stock: Gifts of appreciated stock allow the donor to receive a tax deduction for their stock donation. OSA provides a confirmation of the stock transfer through our broker Merrill Lynch which can be used to determine fair market value at the time of the donation to OSA.
We accept Donor-Advised Fund contributions! Consider recommending a grant distribution through your DAF sponsor to OSA.
