Charitable Gifts of 2022 Highlighted in February Edition

PHILANTHROPY: Over $393M reported for 2021

Did you, your company or foundation give—or did your organization receive—a large cash or noncash gift in 2022?

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 2022 donated by companies, foundations and people to recipients in Orange County.

The list is scheduled to publish in the Feb. 13 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 annual listing, we published 88 entries in our ranking of 2021 gifts.

It was capped by the Audrey Steele Burnand $57.8 million estate gift to University of California, Irvine to fund the creation of a new campuswide center that will pursue research into the causes and treatment of depression and support the UCI-managed Steele/Burnand Anza-Borrego Desert Research Center.

Other generous donors included the Lennar Foundation, MacKenzie Scott and the Chao family.

A handful of recipients included on the list received multiple gifts of $1 million and above.


Jan. 13 Deadline

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.

The deadline is Jan. 13.
