Messages Regarding COVID-19

We Respond to the Urgent Needs of Our Faith Community

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, we are fortunate, as followers of Christ, to turn to our faith to give us strength during these difficult times.

The Orange Catholic Foundation Promise

On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff of The Orange Catholic Foundation, I want to assure our supporters, grant recipients and partners that The Orange Catholic Foundation is here for you during this unprecedented time. While our staff will be working remotely to maintain health and safety, we can still be reached by phone, email, website and social media.

The work of The Orange Catholic Foundation will not be interrupted. The Foundation will continue to award grants as planned, and we look forward to sharing updates on future events on the events page of our website.

Our prayers are with all of you as we navigate through these challenging days. Following Christ’s lead, we will take one day at a time with the confidence that the Lord will keep watch over each of us and replace our worries with His peace.

Processing Grants and Contributions

The Orange Catholic Foundation continues working remotely to serve you, our supporters, and our Catholic community. Please submit any request via email to

It is our intention to complete all grants in a timely manner.  Please include wire instructions with the request, so we may wire the funds to the grantee. It is a good idea to ensure that your grantee organization is set up to take electronic transfers during this time.

For donations to The Orange Catholic Foundation, it is most efficient for those to be done via credit card on this website.

We can also accept wire transfers, ACH payments, stock gifts, and tangible or complex assets. Please contact Elizabeth McKibbin at 949-702-3114 for contributions of this manner or if you have questions.

We are here to help and facilitate your gifts during this very trying and ever-changing time. We are all in this together and we will all get through this together!
