Grants Overview

Together We Are Building a Stronger, Healthier and More Vibrant Community

Local needs require local action and that is exactly why the Orange County Community Foundation works closely with Orange County’s nonprofit community.

Our grant programs are made possible through the Orange County Endowment, field-of-interest funds, and legacy funds and are guided by research on our community’s needs. We are committed to making life better for all who call Orange County home.

We invite you to visit the listed areas of funding for details on our available programs, qualification criteria, proposal requirements and applications. Applicant organizations should pay close attention to timelines and criteria, as unsolicited grant proposals are not accepted. Every grant program has its own application process and annual cycle. If you are a previous or current OCCF grantee, all reporting requirements must be current or your organization will not be considered for funding.

Available Grants

The Orange County Community Foundation awards grants year-round through competitive grant cycles as well as discretionary and advised grant making.


Report Guidelines

Grant agreements require your organization to provide reports on the progress and outcomes of OCCF supported programs.


Additional Resources

Orange County Community Foundation seeks to strengthen and leverage resources for nonprofits through grants and scholarships.
