Did you, your company or foundation give—or did your organization receive—a large cash or noncash gift in 2020?

The Business Journal wants to hear from you.

We’re in the beginning stages of collecting data for the largest cash and noncash gifts of 2020 donated by companies, foundations and people to recipients in Orange County.

The list is scheduled to publish in the Feb. 8 edition of the Business Journal, an issue that will highlight a wealth of philanthropic efforts taking place in OC.

Cash gifts of $1 million or more and other notable noncash gifts will be considered for the list and related coverage.

Last year in our second annual listing, we published 60 entries in our ranking of 2019 gifts.

It was capped by the Frank and Joann Randall $50 million pledge and gift to preserve The Banning Ranch Conservancy as a nature sanctuary.

Other area business executives and their families, such as the Beall family and Dean and Gerda Koontz, also played prominent parts in the list and related stories.

If you or your organization qualifies for the upcoming listing, let us know and don’t miss out.

The Business Journal has an online form to fill out for consideration.

Go to to nominate your gift for the list.

The deadline has been extended to Jan. 22.
