A message from the Campaign's creator...

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website!! As you probably know, every year I’m up for a physical challenge to raise awareness and money for my most favorite non-profit charity, Orangewood Foundation (! This year is no different. I’ll be joining three teammates along with other teams on Saturday, September 16th for the 2nd Annual Orangewood Adventure Challenge. The event takes place on Catalina Island and includes biking, running, and kayaking.

Orangewood Foundation is a non-profit organization that makes a difference through their vast programs focusing on Health & Wellness, Housing, Life Skills & Employment, and Education. The Adventure Challenge will specifically support Orangewood’s college scholarships for former foster youth. Orangewood responsibly utilizes their resources by contributing $0.88 of each dollar to their programs and youth. I ask for your financial support to help make the dreams of the underprivileged youth a reality!!!

My goal is to raise $15,000 ($500 per mile of the Challenge). Below are ways you can give and examples of how Orangewood applies your gift:

$5,000 = A 1-year scholarship and book stipend at a 4-year college or university
$2,500 = A 1-year scholarship at a community college
$1,000 = A 1-year book stipend at a college or university
$500 = A 1-semester book stipend at a college or university

Orangewood Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization (Tax ID# 95-3616628.)

As always, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your support!!

Orangewood Foundation invites you to join us in giving Orange County foster youth the support, resources and encouragement they need to become happy, self-sufficient adults. Did you know that in Orange County alone, there are almost 3,000 children in the foster care system at any time? Of those, over 200 will age out of the system (emancipate) at age 18 this year. Without help, their future looks bleak. Approximately 65% will emancipate with no place to live. Less than 2% will graduate from college (46% will not even graduate from high school). For every dollar donated, $0.90 goes directly to Orangewood programs focused on education, employment, housing, life skills and basic needs. In our 30+ year history we have helped over 74,000 kids find their wings and soar. Beyond our programs, for thousands of foster children Orangewood means “family,” “opportunity” and “hope.”
