Partnering with Advisors

The Jewish Community Foundation Orange County has a long history of working with attorneys, accountants, financial advisors and wealth managers, providing them with tools to engage their clients in charitable conversations to enhance their relationships.



The Foundation offers the RCA program to advance charitable planning and to further strengthen our partnership with the Orange County professional advisor community. This program was designed by the Jewish Community Foundation San Diego and is sponsored by the Jewish Community Foundation Orange County.

Over lunchtime workshops (or via Zoom), professional advisors meet and learn from philanthropy professionals and colleagues to discuss approaches to strengthening their client relationships.


Participation Cost
