a flourishing community
We believe Fair Oaks and Orangevale communities are at their best
when service and generosity are at the core of who we are.
When we say we want to see our entire community flourish, we mean it. It drives what we do. We believe our community is at its best when everyone's basic practical needs are met. We want to create a sense of belonging in the community, and for people to be connected - that they know each other. We aim for all residents and organizations in Orangevale and Fair Oaks to be engaged in making our community better, and service and generosity are at the core of who we are.
Our founding team of volunteers started with a simple goal of helping those in need in our community by launching the Orangevale-Fair Oaks Food Bank in 2011. The vision expanded in 2015 when the Community Foundation was born, and the vision continues to grow as we seek to make Fair Oaks and Orangevale a great place to live and work.
It is our goal to see people flourish throughout Fair Oaks and Orangevale by developing programs that create opportunities for generosity and service.
We believe everyone can flourish
by being good to themselves,
to each other, & contributing to the wellbeing of the community!
