Support for OC Opportunity Initiative

Support for OC
Opportunity Initiative

The OC Opportunity Initiative is a collaborative of regional grantmakers dedicated to improving the lives of immigrants in Orange County. The group originated as a collection of funders wanted to be educated about, work together on, and ultimately improve outcomes for immigrants in Orange County. Members of the OC Opportunity Initiative believe that philanthropy can and should play a defining role in shaping a successful immigrant integration strategy in Orange County. The group is committing to helping to foster an even bolder, more cohesive and stronger future for our community.

With the extraordinary support of our local and regional funders, the OC Opportunity Initiative leveraged $239,000 in national matching funds to raise a total of $700,000 to support immigrant integration in the first year alone.

Individual Donors

The OC Opportunity Initiative also includes several individual donors, including:

  • Donnie Crevier
