Union City: Donates $5,200

Through Impact Club, as Impact Venture Capitalists, we invest heavily in local charities that demonstrate a powerful “Story Engine,” and have proven their willingness to fight for their cause – by competing in and winning a high-stakes competition. As a result, Impact Club, through Impact Venture Capitalism has dramatically multiplied the Impact that a single person can have on charities in their local community.

The Charities

Unravel Pediatric Cancer
Aileen Ramones
Pediatric Cancer Help

Every day, 42 children are diagnosed with cancer, 12% of those children will not survive; 7 children die every day. What’s even more heartbreaking, is that although pediatric cancer is the number one disease killer of children in the U.S., less than 4% of our government’s cancer research budget is allocated to children’s cancer research. Unravel Pediatric Cancer is an organization formed to raise awareness about the lack of funding for pediatric cancer research.

The Village Method
Mahea Gaskins
Achieving Academic Success

The Village Method seeks to create a united community that is invested in the success of its youth and families. We believe in maximizing the resources within our community, engaging families and empowering children to achieve social, academic and economic success. We work to overcome the challenges that prevent African American students from achieving their full potential and provide pipeline for students to progress to college, careers and back to their community.

Centro De Servicios
Steve Mendez
Helping People In Need

Centro de Servicios was established during some of the most tumultuous and unjust time periods in Union City’s history. Initially its focus was to provide legal aid, immigration assistance, and food to the sorely underserved Latino community. As the need grew, Centro fanned out to all people in need regardless of their heritage, nationality, race, color, creed, religion, or sexual orientation. Centro de Servicios is now the oldest non-profit social services agency in Alameda County’s TriCity Area.
