About us

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. Since then, the group has doubled in size. It is made up of some of Orange County’s most philanthropically-minded and dedicated women who are devoted to Orangewood’s mission.

Our Mission
44 Women for Orangewood contributes to Orangewood Foundation by nurturing, supporting and inspiring teens who are required to leave the foster care system on their 18th birthdays.
