A number of local programs, including the backpacks and running start programs in local schools, have had their beginnings with the Foundation's assistance; and we continue to serve as financial administrators for these programs. So far, Orange County Community Foundation, Inc. has assisted with more than $1.2 million in program support for Orange County.
There are many ways you can give to the funds at OCCF. Donate to an existing endowment, create your own endowment fund, assist with a local program, and more.
