Nonprofits: Imagine the Good We Could Do Together

$425 million: That’s what OCCF has granted since 1989. The Orange County Community Foundation manages a variety of grant programs to honor our donors’ charitable intentions and help our community thrive. Through the generosity of our donors, we are able to make these grants that allow us the flexibility to meet changing community needs, now and in the future. OCCF provides assistance to programs and organizations that support a variety of fields, including the arts, local culture, the environment, education, health and human services and youth development. We keep local nonprofits’ work front and center through Nonprofit Central, our searchable database, and giving events such as i♥oc Giving Day.

We’re excited to work with you! Take a look at Nonprofit Central and our grants page. Let’s get started!
