Mission Statement

Established in 1984, it is the mission of the Anaheim Community Foundation (ACF) to build community through people, partnerships and pride. The goals in support of the Anaheim Community Foundation’s mission are to:

  • Encourage community participation, partnerships, and collaboration that result in successful responses to community challenges and opportunities.

Background Statement

 

The Anaheim Community Foundation (ACF) has helped build and maintain a better Anaheim since 1984. ACF encourages community participation, partnerships, and collaboration among the business and nonprofit sectors to effectively address community needs.

ACF is a member of Council On Foundations and embraces the Donor Bill of Rights to ensure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors have full confidence in the causes they are asked to support.

Our all-volunteer Board of Directors from Anaheim civic and business communities takes pride in utilizing a wide variety of skill sets to manage the 501c(3) nonprofit organization and carefully steward funds.

 


Impact Statement

The Anaheim Community Foundation (ACF) is non-profit corporation established in 1984. Our vision is for residents of all ages to have greater quality of life and greater access to opportunities where they live, work, play, and learn.

ACF supports a broad base of programs that enrich the lives of Anaheim residents, such as:

  • Youth Scholarships & Leadership - Helps youth and teens develop self-esteem while promoting personal and community responsibility. The Foundation’s youth programs and scholarships provide positive recreational and leadership activities that emphasize the value of staying in school, job training, and community involvement.
  • Helping Hands Grant Program – Provides annual grants to local charities to advance their social impact, particularly in the areas of engaging at-risk youth, providing emergency assistance, helping residents in need, and promoting arts, culture and learning.
  • Community Improvements - Provides community support to ensure affordable opportunities for families to enjoy libraries, music, dance, and theater arts.
  • Quality of Life - ACF is committed to assisting those with disabilities to develop their own social skills with confidence and independence by supporting programs for seniors, therapeutic recreation, and various human services.


Needs Statement

In 2012-13, ACF conducted an Anaheim Youth Service Assessment with 130 stakeholders, with focus group input from parents and community leaders. Among the priorities that emerged from this study are the need for:

  • Safe programs for youth

  • Experiential leadership opportunities for youth and teens
  • Family involvement

  • Community collaboration

The full report is available atwww.AnaheimCF.org

The teen population is a severely underserved segment of our community. There are simply not enough experiential learning opportunities for the teen population, particularly those focused on preparing them for higher learning and 21st century careers. It is more important than ever that the at-risk youth in Anaheim be presented with opportunities to increase engagement with their community and build self-confidence. Proven alternatives to gangs, substance abuse, and other unhealthy life choices are desperately needed for this historically underserved demographic.


CEO Statement

As Executive Director of the Anaheim Community Foundation, I believe in the power of the nonprofit sector to fill vital gaps in our communities. ACF has been dedicated to enriching the lives Anaheim residents since 1984, and we will continue to keep a pulse of community needs and become a hub of philanthropic support throughout Anaheim. I look forward to building strategic relationships with our donors, supporters, and partners to create both life-enriching and life-changing impact where it is needed most.

 


Board Chair Statement

 

On behalf of our entire board, we thank Anaheim residents for their generosity in supporting ACF for the benefit of our community. Because of the Foundation’s minimal operating costs, donors have the unique opportunity to give locally and be secure in the knowledge that their gifts are directed to the program of their choice. Donors have the opportunity to make a difference, be remembered, and enrich the quality of life in our community now and in the future.

Programs


Youth Scholarships & Leadership

ACF helps youth and teens develop self-esteem while promoting personal and community responsibility. The Foundation’s youth programs and scholarships provide positive recreational and leadership activities that emphasize the value of staying in school, job training, and community involvement. In the past 10 years, ACF has impacted more than 3,500 youth through program scholarships of over $285,000.

Among the numerous programs that ACF supports is Project S.A.Y. (Support Anaheim's Youth), for which we are submitting this grant. Project S.A.Y. is the City of Anaheim’s Youth Development Program, serving Junior High and High School age youth and their families. The program uses a combination of Youth Outreach, Case Management, School Interventions, Assistance to Parents, Community Education, Youth Leadership Development, and Employment to engage youth in positive and constructive activities to promote the healthy development of young people.

Program Success Monitored By 

ACF conducts post-class evaluations via an online survey. Staff also receives real-time feedback from participants and families, and will tailor activities and volunteer projects based on the needs of the group.


Examples of Program Success 

Improved Community Participation - By becoming familiar with City programs, staff, and peers, we hope to build strong relationships that will have a lasting impact on their involvement with the community. This involvement includes increased volunteerism and positive community engagement.

Improved Self Confidence – Self-confidence gives teens a solid foundation for learning and development, as well as give them the keys to a healthy and positive future. Being given a chance to learn and excel at new skills can help at-risk teens to further develop and build their self-confidence.

Improved Communication - When participants sign up for our programs, we obtain contact information. Once we establish that connection with the participant and their family, it opens the door to improving communication and providing further opportunities for them to connect with their community.
