Orangewood Foundation Logo

Orangewood Foundation was founded in 1981 and today is one of the leading providers of services to foster and community youth in Orange County. Foundation programs focus on four critical areas: health & wellness, housing, life skills & employment, and education. Recognizing that 46% of foster youth do not graduate from high school, in August 2013 the Foundation opened Samueli Academy, a free public charter high school for community, underserved and foster teens and located in Santa Ana. In June 2017, our inaugural graduating class had a 99% graduation rate with 97% of students continuing on to college. Annually, Orangewood Foundation serves almost 2,000 foster and community youth.

Family, Friends & Partners!

As many of you know, I have been involved with Orangewood Foundation as an Ambassador for over 17 years.  My love and commitment for what they do keeps me involved year after year as I witness youth who have been abused, neglected and are a part of the foster care system have their lives transformed based on the incredible support and amazing programs Orangewood has to offer!  They are a trusted non-profit organization that changes lives!!

In lieu of any gifts, I ask for you to pleases donate to Orangewood.  One of the things I LOVE about them is they are incredible stewards of their money.  For every dollar raised, 97% of the funds go towards their vast, life-changing programs!

$10 Buys a bus pass for one of our youth

$100 Pays for a high school graduation expense

$500 Pays for a college student’s textbooks for a semester

$1000 Pays for a youth’s 1-on-1 weekly therapy sessions for three months (Donors become Orangewood Ambassadors)

GRATEFUL & THANKFUL for your care & support!!

Love,

Laura
