44 Women for Orangewood is a unique group of women passionate about helping Orange County’s foster and community youth. It was founded in 1999 by Susan Samueli with 44 of her closest friends. It is made up of some of Orange County’s most philanthropically-minded and dedicated women who are devoted to Orangewood’s mission. 44 WFO focuses its efforts in three key areas: providing mentoring and education, increasing community awareness about the youth Orangewood serves, and hosting annual fundraising events.
44 Women for Orangewood contributes to Orangewood Foundation by nurturing, supporting and inspiring foster and community youth that receive support services through programs provided by Orangewood Foundation.
