The funding for Dinners4KidsOC.org depends solely on donations. The organization is reaching out to the community, to organizations and businesses to raise money to feed these and more children in need. The more money we raise, the more children we can feed.
All the funds donated to the program are used for the direct costs of preparing and distributing restaurant-quality microwaveable meals to hungry children. This is a volunteer-based program, with no paid staff and no facility expenses.
Donations may be tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. Please consult with your tax advisor.
You may choose to donate once or to donate on a monthly basis. All donations are appreciated and welcome!

What is a community foundation?
A community foundation is a tax-exempt, non-profit, publicly supported, philanthropic institution with the long term goal of building permanent, named funds for the broad-based charitable benefit of the residents in a given area.
The common mission of every community foundation is to enhance the quality of life in the local area. Community foundations carry out this very broad mission by building a permanent endowment fund and using the annual income to support a variety of local nonprofit organizations through grants and special projects.
Most community foundation assets are held in separate funds established by local individuals, families, businesses, or charitable institutions. Each fund may have a special purpose, but the foundation board of directors, representing the community, oversees them all. The IRS recognizes community foundations as public charities in part because they receive support from the general public and their boards broadly represent the areas served.
