Get Involved

Helping you give with impact is our top priority.

The Orange County Community Foundation has a dedicated team of professionals that will work closely with you to expand your knowledgebase of giving and charitable options, as well as help you engage with issues that reflect your values and passions.

Whether you want to learn about community needs, explore new giving opportunities or meet other donors with similar interests, we make it easy. We sponsor a range of groups, events, and activities designed to help inform and inspire your philanthropic efforts.

A Community of Families

Local family foundations meet quarterly for engaging presentations and peer learning opportunities to bolster their knowledge and impact on the issues they care about most. Membership with the Family Foundation Alliance provides opportunities to connect with other local foundations to explore strategies for being more effective, impactful, and engaged in achieving philanthropic objectives.

Collaborative Grant-making

The Impact Philanthropy program was created by charitably minded professionals and emerging leaders living and working in Orange County. Each year members participate in a 6-month grant-making cycle which aligns to a specific cause, where they donate a contribution, pool their funds, and collaboratively decide which local nonprofits will be recipients of their collective donation.
