PANIL, a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization, is supported by donations to cover the regular ongoing costs of maintenance of the website, newsletter production, and fees associated with reporting requirements to California’s Secretary of State and to the IRS. Donations to PANIL also build a reserve fund for the costs incurred when we pay the fee to appeal decisions of the Oakland Planning Department about development or construction in our area. Those costs include filing fees and hiring lawyers to advocate for neighborhood values. You can donate here.

PANIL activities are planned and carried out by a small, dedicated group, the Steering Committee:
Bill Manley
Valerie Winemiller
Margitta Gardner
Christine Wilder Abrams
Gail Jara

Send thoughts, suggestions and question to them by contacting us.
