A Look Back – Celebrating 10 Years of Grants

The potential for strengthening communities and nations through giving back is incredibly important; it brings people together and provides us all with valuable experience and insight. Whether you donate your money, time, talents or something else, giving back to society has profound benefits for both the giver and receiver. Mahatma Gandhi is quoted as saying “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” And, it feels great to help!

When our founding Partners created Impact Giving 10 years ago, they wanted to make as big of an impact as possible by transforming lives in our communities, our nation and around the world.  Our grant season has always been the backbone of this mission – providing our Partners with the opportunity to bring to our attention non-profit organizations that work to transform lives around the world.

Having recently kicked off our 10th grant season in October, we are so proud to be able to look back at what we’ve been able to accomplish together. With over 130 Partners in Orange County and beyond, we’ve been able to collectively give $1.13 million to non-profits across the globe supporting education, health and wellness, human rights, human services, hunger and shelter, and women and children. Our 10-year infographic to the left shows our impressive numbers!

We are so excited to kick off the 2018-2019 grant season and watch these numbers continue to grow. Click here to learn the different ways you can get involved in the process and help transform lives through the power of collective giving.
