San Francisco Business Times

Kaiser Permanente, the huge health care system based in Oakland, said Monday it’s donating $10.5 million to bolster financially stressed schools and community programs in its home town, including a $7.5 million gift to the Oakland Unified School District. Kaiser said the gifts, which it labeled as “investments,” are intended to help Oakland school children stay healthier as they learn, help them increase their attendance rates and academic performance, “and teach them about humanitarian leaders who succeeded in making positive differences in their communities.”
