About Us

It’s About Being Part of Something Great

The dream of a more vibrant, prosperous Orange County is within our reach.

Simply put, we help people support the causes they care about most. We work with individuals, families and businesses to match charitable interests to community needs. We provide grants and resources to nonprofits and monitor local issues.

Our Mission

We inspire a passion for lifelong philanthropy, faithfully steward the intentions of our donors and catalyze sustainable community impact.

Our People

Our Board of Governors, staff and advisory committee members are diverse yet united in their shared passion and vision for our community.

Our Work

OCCF’s work ranges from helping veterans return to civilian life to providing at-risk teens with opportunities to overcome the challenges of poverty. We’re working on problems of homelessness, health and wellness, and education as well as what we term safety-net concerns, the critical issues that arise when deep poverty and a high cost of living coexist.

The issues are connected; the solution involves you. Read our 2019 Annual Report and learn more about our community impact.
