Give Where Your Heart Lives

What’s Happening

The Orange County Community Foundation is super-charging local giving by hosting Orange County’s second annual, countywide giving day on April 27-28, 2016. Secure, tax-deductible donations will be accepted on during a 30-hour period, and participating Orange County nonprofits will be eligible to receive funding through bonus awards and prizes provided by OCCF and our Giving Day partners.

The Goal: $2 Million for OC Nonprofits

The goal of the i♥oc Giving Day is to inspire our community to come together with extra-mile giving in support of the exemplary work of local nonprofits. OCCF is aiming high with the goal of delivering $2 million to OC nonprofits in a 30-hour period. OCCF is investing $500,000 to establish the bonus pool with a goal of generating an additional $1.5 million in online donations. Let’s come together to show our Orange County nonprofits how much we care!

Super-Size Your Donations

Grow the Good Bonus Pool
The Orange County Community Foundation is providing a bonus pool of $400,000. All donations made during the 30-hour period of iheartOC Giving Day to qualified nonprofits on will receive a prorated portion of the bonus pool. For example, if a total of $1.5 million is contributed on Giving Day and ASF raised $15,000, we would receive a bonus grant of 1% of the pool, or $4,000.
