Earlier this month, Accelerate Change Together for Anaheim (ACT Anaheim) announced ACT II, a total of $2 million in funding to benefit 14 Orange County nonprofits. ACT Anaheim was launched in 2014 by Disneyland Resort, Angels Baseball and the Anaheim Ducks, which collectively committed $3 million to address gaps in services for underserved Anaheim youth over the span of three years. The first round of funding, $1.5 million to 10 nonprofits, took place last year. The Orange County Community Foundation (OCCF) serves as managing partner and an investor in the grant initiative.

“ACT Anaheim is a groundbreaking collaboration of leaders from the business, community and nonprofit sectors who are committed to serving vulnerable youth and families in Anaheim,” said Shelley Hoss, president of OCCF. “By engaging a growing base of funders, we have already exceeded the initial three-year, $3 million goal set by the founding partners by delivering a cumulative $3.5 million in ACT’s first two years. This program is driving true impact and building a foundation for lasting change in Anaheim.”
