Some call it the most important meal of the day. For Orange County United Way, the Women’s Philanthropy Fund Breakfast is arguably the most significant one of the year. Since 2004, this inspirational event has raised millions of dollars to benefit local programs and services that empower women and their families.
Funds support education and self-sufficiency for at-risk women and children. Early-grade reading programs, after-school activities and physical fitness, innovative career assistance, initiatives to help families find permanent housing—all are programs that align with our FACE 2024 goals. Through the Breakfast, the Women’s Philanthropy Fund is able to grant significant resources to the community.

This professional women’s event, recognized as one of the most successful breakfast fundraisers in the county, celebrates the power of philanthropists who are changing the lives of individuals, children and families in the community.

Take advantage of this opportunity to support women and children through the Women’s Philanthropy Fund Breakfast—and help us transform the future of Orange County’s next generation.
