Our Vision

Orange County Grantmakers envision an Orange County where philanthropists and nonprofits work together as partners to achieve equity for our most impacted communities.

In 2006 a small group of Grantmakers including the Pacific Life Foundation, Orange County Children and Families Commission, Orange County Community Foundation, Irvine Health Foundation and Change a Life Foundation met to discuss the idea of forming a local, peer-based funding collaborative.
