Dear Friend,

We are writing to you to request your support of CAL-PEP 28 fundraising campaign in
recognition of our 28 years of operation and provision of services to high-risk populations in
Oakland, Alameda County and the greater bay area. CAL-PEP is a unique, African American
organization. We provide a range of health services that includes coordinated HIV testing,
outreach, van transportation services, substance abuse, mental health, employment support,
advocacy, research, community forums and violence prevention services. This CAL-PEP 28
campaign is CAL-PEP’s annual fundraiser. We will also continue to host small fundraisers
throughout the year.

Since 2009, CAL-PEP has been deeply impacted by the state and national financial crisis.
With the support of the board, funders, community, and staff, we have continued to operate.
Because of California’s ongoing budget crisis, we anticipate additional funding and budget cuts.
We serve highest need communities and serve individuals who are typically low-income,
substance users, sex-workers, offenders with criminal justice involvement and homeless. We
provide health services and programs to people on the margins that others refuse or choose not
to serve.
Since 1998, we have brought awareness, services, research and advocacy to address the HIV/
AIDS state of emergency in the African American community. During 2011, our dedicated
staff provided services to over 5,000 individuals. These services include HIV testing and
counseling, HIV/STD case management, risk reduction counseling, HIV/STD and substance
abuse prevention education groups and workshops and digital HIV prevention education via
the Hypechat website. CAL-PEP has an established reputation for research and evaluation of
program outcomes to demonstrate that services are effective. The agency is a partner in research
collaborations that involve the community in identifying needs, trends and direction of future
interventions.

In October 2011, CAL-PEP opened a Family Planning Clinic on a part-time basis. The
economic realities that we face in our country and declining funds for HIV and AIDS services
has required a change in our strategic direction. Given our mission to provide health services
to high risk individuals, we have expanded our services to include substance abuse, ex-offender
and medical services. We ask that you support the CAL-PEP 28 fundraising campaign by pledging
$28 a month or $336 per year. We would appreciate any amount that you are willing to
contribute. Your contribution will be used to provide general and administrative support to
agency operations in the form of development, reception and administrative staff. Your support
is critical to CAL-PEP’s future.

Please return the enclosed response card. The CAL-PEP 28 Campaign will provide

contribution quarterly online updates to keep you abreast of our progress throughout the year.

Sincerely,

Gloria Lockett
Executive Director

Carla Dillard Smith
Deputy Director
