Orange County Grantmakers (OCG) is a funder collaborative committed to advancing social impact by supporting, strengthening and building adaptive leadership across our nonprofit and philanthropic community.
We invite philanthropists dedicated to supporting the community needs of Orange County to join our efforts.
OCG has promoted information sharing and collaborative funding projects among regional funders, and sponsored community needs assessments to better gauge the issues facing local nonprofits.
BENEFITS OF COLLABORATION
By sharing information and through direct grant making collaborations, regional funders in Orange County can increase the effectiveness of their philanthropic efforts.
Members are encouraged to support Orange County Grantmakers through annual dues of $5,000. First year members are welcome to join for $1000. Every year, OCG members will have the opportunity to additionally sponsor the Summit for Nonprofit Leaders at an amount above their dues. Additional recognition will be given at the Summit for all sponsorship activities.
All funders, philanthropists, foundations and grantmaking organizations are welcome to join. Member organizations must fund a minimum of $250,000 in Orange County, but funding can be through in-kind donations, grant making, direct contributions, or nonprofit organizational support.
Organizations that both make and receive grants are welcome, so long as attending members have the primary responsibility of contributions on behalf of their organization in Orange County
