The Initiatives that Unite Our Community

OCCF continues to work with our donors and community partners to answer the call. Here are just a few of the Charitable Funds and Community Impact Initiatives where your giving can be amplified.

Workforce Development Initiative
Inspired by projections of 17,000 middle-skills jobs to become available in Orange County over the next decade, OCCF launched a Workforce Development Initiative in 2019 to help graduating high school seniors, disconnected older youth and underemployed young adults acquire the skills and credentials needed to secure in-demand, high-quality jobs aligned with the needs of local employers.

African American Alliance Fund
Founded by OCCF’s Executive Vice President & COO, Tammy Tumbling, the mission of the African American Alliance Fund is to raise awareness about systemic racism and support programs that advance Black Residents within Orange County and surrounding communities. The fund intends to provide grant funds for services in the areas of education, health, human services, economic and civic engagement, and professional development as well as serve as a partner and convening space to raise and amplify the voices of Orange County’s Black community.

Orange County Social Justice Fund
This new Orange County Community Foundation field of interest fund was established by Keith Swayne in 2022 to support Orange County nonprofits that are working to ensure a more fair and equitable community for all. The fund’s vision is an Orange County where all residents have equal economic, political, and social rights and opportunities regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or other characteristics.
