REBUTTAL TO OFFICE OF THE MAYOR, CITY ADMINISTRATOR, HUMAN SERVICE DEPARTMENT [STAFF CONTACT KATHY HICKS] REGARDING THE PUBLIC RECORDS REQUEST 20-6010 AND CITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION 88208 CMS , APPROVING $1,150,000.00 TO A ROGUE ORGANIZATION KNOWN AS "OAKLAND PROMISE " WITHOUT THE VERIFICATION OF THE LEGAL STATUS OF THIS IDENTIFICATION OF "OAKLAND PROMISE " WHOSE CEO IS MIA BONTA OF THE ROGUE "OAKLAND PROMISE " AND WHO IS THE SIGNATURE RECEIPIENT AND GRANTEE OF $1,150,000.00 APPROVED BY CITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION 88208 CMS , WITHOUT VERIFICATION OF THIS ROGUE "OAKLAND PROMISE " LEGAL STATUS AS A 501(c)3 nonprofit tax-exempt public benefit corporation.. THIS CLEARLY IS AN ILLEGAL AND FRAUDULENT TRANSACTION!
Please be advised the document you provided in the California Secretary of State's Office and the Employer Identification Number 54-2103707 is that of EAST BAY COLLEGE FUND [EBCF].
On June 27, 2019, EBCF, Amended and Restated their Articles of Incorporation from 2003 and changed the organizational name to OAKLAND PROMISE as noted in the Whereas Clause of the City Council Resolution #88208 CMS approving the $1,150,000.00 to OAKLAND PROMISE.
This OAKLAND PROMISE is not the same OAKLAND PROMISE as identified in the Grant Packet of 2019-2021 rather is the rogue OAKLAND PROMISE without any verification of the organizations LEGAL STATUS as a 501(c)3 nonprofit tax-exempt public benefit corporation.
Further, the document reveals that this rogue OAKLAND PROMISE, whose CEO, Mia Bonta, the wife of California Assemblymember Ron Bonta is the recipient and the grantee of the $1,150,000.00 approved by Resolution 88208. An additional $500,000.00 was also approved to this rogue OAKLAND PROMISE without any verification of the organization's LEGAL STATUS as a 501(c)3 nonprofit tax-exempt public benefit corporation. The City Council authorized these funds under Resolution 87761CMS at the same meeting when they authorized Resolution 88208 CMS.
It should be further noted that on August 27, 2019 , CEO, Mia Bonta filed a Fictitious Business Name in the Alameda County Clerk-Recorders Office as your documents reveals. This is incongruent with the above Resolution s. How can EBCF do a name change to OAKLAND PROMISE and OAKLAND PROMISE as reflected in the Alameda County Clerk-Recorders Office do a Fictitious Business Name [DBA] EAST BAY COLLEGE FUND.
Additionally, neither OAKLAND PROMISE is represented on GUIDESTAR'S website the platform for ALL NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS.
