Corporate Cares

Orangewood’s Corporate Cares Program is about partnering with local businesses and companies to further their philanthropic goals, increase visibility within the community, and help to further a cause – ending the cycles of child abuse and poverty in our community.  Our partners combine employee engagement, in-kind and monetary contributions to make a direct impact on those we serve – foster and disadvantaged youth. There are three ways that your company can get involved with Orangewood Children’s Foundation's Corporate Cares Program. As a:

  • Corporate Visionary: Championing our cause by adopting an annual Orangewood project
  • Corporate Advocate: Sponsoring Orangewood special activities for youth and supplying volunteers
  • Corporate Member: Supporting our youth by hosting employee “fun-raisers” and supply drives
