Nearly 400 philanthropists, business and community members gathered for OCCF’s Annual Meeting on Dec. 1, 2022. Held in person for the first time since 2019, the event was a celebration of the profound impact of giving in Orange County, across the country and around the world. Event highlights included iheartOC Giving Days reaching a landmark milestone of $20 million raised for OC nonprofits since 2015, the launch of the Orange County Social Justice Fund by philanthropist and community leader Keith Swayne, and a 10-year refresh of OCCF’s ConnectOC data on needs and trends in the OC community.
To dream of a more vibrant, prosperous Orange County, we must understand and confront difficult realities faced by too many of our residents and coordinate our response so that every effort counts. These are the aims of ConnectOC, an initiative of the Orange County Community Foundation with support from visionary leaders, generous donors, and hardworking organizations across our community.
We’re thrilled to introduce the Orange County Social Justice Fund! Created through the vision and generosity of Keith Swayne, this new initiative is a move toward unity and creating local impact.
Our iheartOC Giving Days just hit a major milestone – $20M in cumulative granting mobilized by and for local nonprofits. Check out the video to learn more!
