Just like in the corporate world, nonprofits are only as strong as the staff who run them and training provides a great opportunity for growth, reflection and networking.

OneOC's Champions for Changemakers helps foster talent and build capacity in Orange County's nonprofit sector. With YOUR support, your favorite nonprofit can receive OneOC's in-house and virtual training for an entire year.


Often times nonprofits don’t have the funding to provide these sorts of opportunities, so it’s great that sponsors see the long term benefits for this investment in the people.

Heather Disher | The Ecology Center

Our employees completed more OneOC trainings in a year than ever before! This training advanced their capacity in managing our volunteers, building internal teamwork, and several other areas specifically related to nonprofits.

Holly Epstein | Girl Scouts of Orange County

We are so honored to have been given this amazing opportunity. It allowed us to expand our skill sets and take classes that have always been of interest to us. I love any opportunity where I am encouraged to learn. This is a wonderful program and any organization selected to participate is very lucky.
