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 at-risk OC families.
Funds are invested in life-changing programs and services provided through our Impact Hubs. Located in elementary schools and other sites that serve as centers of community life, our Impact Hubs make accessing services easy. Impact Hub programs tackle intergenerational poverty by aligning services that meet the needs of children, their parents, and the whole family.

The Women’s Philanthropy Fund Breakfast is not just Orange County’s ultimate power breakfast, it’s an opportunity to make a significant impact in our community. Highly regarded philanthropists and leaders gather at this signature event to share their passion for empowering OC families.
