Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: volunteer with a cause and an organization that meets their time, interest and ability needs. The Tustin Community Foundation will match up any volunteer with causes they care about.
Geographic areas served: The Greater Tustin Area includes the City of Tustin and portions of Irvine, Santa Ana and unincorporated Orange County.
In order to support the community and those organizations which also serve the greater Tustin area, the Tustin Community Foundation has instituted a COMMUNITY GRANT program. Each year TCF awards grants for a broad array of charitable purposes in the areas of education, arts and culture, health and wellness, children and youth activities, social services, and for general community programs that improve the well-being of the residents of the greater Tustin area.
In addition, every spring, in conjunction with the Tustin Street Fair & Chili Cook-Off Steering Committee, the Tustin Community Foundation selects one or two Tustin area non-profit organizations to receive a donation from event proceeds that the organization will use for their community service programs to benefit Tustin area residents.
The Foundation also connects community volunteers to the causes they care about. Communities thrive when people feel involved.
