About OCCF Powering Good

About OCCF Powering Good

Over the past 30 years, we’ve been recognized as a community leader, builder and convener. This year, in the face of dramatic need and unprecedented challenges, OCCF’s work in service to our community has never been more important. We mounted a groundbreaking response to the challenges of the pandemic, dramatically increasing grants to support vulnerable populations and awarding more than $4 million to 164 nonprofits on the frontlines of need through a collaborative effort launched with fellow OC funders.

Powering Good supports the vital work and mission of the community foundation to:
• Develop unparalleled knowledge of local needs and issues facing OC’s nonprofit sector
• Drive innovative solutions to our community’s most pressing challenges
• Partner with local nonprofit leaders and philanthropists to create lasting impact

Join us in building a stronger, healthier community for all who call Orange County home.
