Sorry I have been so long in posting but I’ve changed and changed again trying to find my greater purpose. Since my last post, back in 2012, I started Funding Wealth Capital, LLC with my partner Al Davis. We are assisting an Oakland non-profit to open a local bingo hall. Through a year’s worth of research we found bingo generates a robust income. Another fact is 70% of income after expenses has to go to other non-profits. I’ve been combing the web for good, stable, local non-profits that help the community. I’m sure you all know of some so make sure to comment.
leonaFunding Wealth Capital is assisting with fundraising to open the bingo hall through a series of investor workshops. I must say this is going very well. I’m learning a lot about fundraising and all of the legality behind being a blessing. Schools and students can profit from this giving. And little do the bingo patrons know, they are changing their community every time they play.
We’re also raising money on Indiegogo: Help Oakland Public Schools Through Bingo (click the link)
The targets of the charities are primarily Oakland Public Schools and college scholarships. Its funny, years ago I had a small business helping students to find money for college. Fast forward 20+ years and I’m doing the same thing.
