Making Connections Count

A Year of Promise

It has been a momentous year for the Orange County Community Foundation. Annual contributions reached an all-time high of nearly $40 million and we awarded $28.7 million in grants to nonprofits making an impact locally, nationally and around the world. OCCF has now granted more than $225 million since our inception – nearly $190 million in the last decade alone. The generosity and passion of the people of Orange County have made OCCF one of the most active grant-makers among community foundations in the U.S.

The year ahead brings even more promise as we embrace a more robust leadership role in service to the people of Orange County. This starts with the launch of ConnectOC.orghome to our first Community Report and the upcoming Nonprofit Central database, Orange County’s first complete online source for knowledge related to the local nonprofit sector.

We aim for ConnectOC.org to inspire both passion and active engagement among members of our community and to pave the way toward a brighter Orange County. We hope you’ll join us.

Sincerely,

Timothy J. Kay, Chairman of the Board
