WE RISE BY LIFTING OTHERS

The Aliso Viejo Community Foundation is committed to enriching the lives of our residents by creating and broadening the educational, cultural and health and fitness opportunities of Aliso Viejo students.

We strive to continually empower our young people by providing crucial extracurricular grants to local schools and organizations, and by awarding college scholarships that facilitate continued education. Thanks to the support of generous individuals and businesses throughout the community, as well as our partnerships with local schools and organizations, we increase and enhance the academic success of our community –  now and for years to come.

The Aliso Viejo Community Foundation also celebrates the history and heritage of Aliso Viejo by supporting the preservation of treasured community sites and artifacts.

FOUNDED IN 1988

The Aliso Viejo Community Foundation is a non profit public benefit corporation (501 c(3)) formed in November 1988 by Mission Viejo Company, the original master developer of Aliso Viejo.

The specific purposes of the foundation are to provide the children of residents with academic scholarships, community educational programs and educational equipment for local schools; to support physical fitness programs for disabled and able-bodied children and adults; and to provide school and community cultural programs.  Since 1988 the foundation has contributed nearly $450,000 to Aliso Viejo schools, events, programs and activities.

By supporting and preserving treasured community sites and artifacts, we celebrate the history, heritage and culture of Aliso Viejo.
