Please take note of the analysis of the response to my Public Records Request 20-6010 regarding the request for a copy of the signature document from the authorizing Agency[INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE] approving the Letter of Determination verifying that OAKLAND PROMISE as identified in the City Council's Resolution 88208CMS approving $1,150,000.00 to the organization known as OAKLAND PROMISE is in fact a 501(c)3 nonprofit tax-exempt public benefit corporation; and is the same OAKLAND PROMISE which is the subject organization that is identified in the 2018 $198 Parcel Tax ballot measure known as the Children's Initiative of 2018 also known as Measure AA, which did not receive two/thirds voter approval for passage and if this OAKLAND PROMISE is the same OAKLAND PROMISE which is part of the lawsuit RG19005204 filed by the Jobs and Housing Coalition on February 1, 2020. In September, 2020 ,the Jobs and Housing Coalition was GRANTED a summary judgment from Alameda County Superior Court that the City Council's action of December 14, 2019 stating that Measure AA had passed was VOTER FRAUD.
Additionally, I requested a copy of the signature document from the authorizing Agency[The California Attorney General] verifying the Certificate of Merger between EAST BAY COLLEGE FUND and the organization known as OAKLAND PROMISE. Again, this document is unresponsive to my PRR 20-6010.
In fact, the OAKLAND PROMISE identified in the City Council's Resolution 88208 CMS states in the Whereas clause is merely a name change as a result of EAST BAY COLLEGE Amending and Restating It's Articles of Incorporation on June 27, 2019.
Another instance of confusion of which OAKLAND PROMISE is being referenced in City Council Resolution 88208CMS and which OAKLAND PROMISE is the recipient of the $1,150,000.00
A further review of the submitted document to my PRR 20-6010 continues to add additional confusion to the identication of which OAKLAND PROMISE is being referenced in Resolution 88208CMS
1. Organization Name. : OAKLAND PROMISE.
IRS. FEIN. 54-2103707

1(a) The discrepancy here is that ALL of
these numbers represent EAST BAY
COLLEGE FUND and not OAKLAND
PROMISE that is the subject matter
in Council Resolution 88208CMS nor
is it the same OAKLAND PROMISE
identified as a component in the
Jobs and Housing Coalition lawsuit

A temporary Cease and Desist Order is appropriate and prudent against OAKLAND PROMISE from any further solicitation and collection of donations until a determination is made regarding the legal status of OAKLAND PROMISE as a 501(c)3 nonprofit tax-exempt public benefit corporation
Finally, OAKLAND PROMISE is not listed on GUIDESTAR'S website the platform for ALL nonprofits. It should be noted that both OAKLAND PUBLIC EDUCATION FUND and EAST BAY COLLEGE FUND is on GUIDESTAR'S platform.
