Giving Back to Our Community
WE ARE PHILANTROPHISTS
Founded in 2014, Center Club Cares was born to expand Center Club Orange County’s reach and play a larger role in the community by supporting nonprofit organizations aligned with the club’s makeup and values. Center Club Cares raises and contributes funds to Orange County nonprofits that provide education and training to help strengthen our workforce development while producing business and community leaders. Center Club Cares initiatives also offer exclusive memberships and private event advantages to nonprofit organizations.

WE’RE OPENING OUR DOORS TO LOCAL NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS!
We are excited to open our doors at Center Club Orange County to organizations that matter to you. We want to give back in a meaningful way, and by offering discounts to local non-profits that hold events at our Club, we feel that we can get to know the organizations that truly matter and make a difference in the community.
OUR SIGNATURE EVENT: HOPS & VINES
The center point of our fundraising is the club’s annual signature event, Orange County’s Hops & Vines, with proceeds benefiting local charity partners. This highly anticipated yearly event features more than 30 award-winning wineries and world-class craft beers, as well as mouthwatering hors d’oeuvres, live entertainment, and a silent auction.

CONTRIBUTE TO CENTER CLUB CARES DONOR ADVISED FUND
Donations for the donor-advised fund can now be made and Members of Center Club may use this avenue for giving back and getting involved in the Orange County Community. All donations will be made directly to OneOC to be held in the fund; for the convenience of its Members, Center Club may arrange to mail checks to OneOC. Donations may not be charged to Club accounts.
PRIOR TO MAKING A DONATION, YOU SHOULD DISCUSS YOUR PLANS WITH LEGAL OR TAX ADVISOR.
Center Club Cares Subcommittee will then advise OneOC to make donations out of the fund to the community partners selected from the annual nomination process.
For more information on getting involved, please contact Center Club Orange County General Manager Craige Bennett.
