What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

A key challenge for the nonprofit sector is building strong,resilient organizations with the staffing, systems and leadership to sustain today's successful programs, while growing impact over time. Operating under tight overhead restrictions and their use of donor funds, many nonprofits have little left to invest in their people and infrastructure. On average, nonprofits spend less than 10% of their budget on their critical investments that makes organizations run and grow, such as business planning, technology and leadership development. Without serious investment in the human capital that will drive program's returns on past investments could be greatly diminished. With increased demands to perform more effectively and efficiently, Orange County's nonprofits rely on the collaborations facilitated by OneOC to build and grow their capacity and impact.

You focus on strategy, program development, and fundraising. We'll take great care of the rest. Think how much more time you could devote to the issue that ignites your passion if only those nagging business issues didn’t keep getting in the way. Think of us as an incubator and outsourcing firm that handles the operational headaches. We provide all the financial, human resources and other core functions nonprofits desperately need, but often lack. But don’t make the mistake of thinking we just provide these services only to small start-ups. Our full suite of business services are also in demand among mid-size and larger community projects, too.
 
Fiscal sponsorship refers to a relationship in which one 501c(3) nonprofit organization, in our case OneOC, shares its tax-exempt status with a project or initiative that does not have an approved IRS nonprofit status. OneOC is legally and financially responsible for all our fiscally sponsored projects and activities. Projects are not separate entities or affiliated organizations, rather they are a part of OneOC. Because they are an integral part of OneOC and not separate legal entities, projects are able to receive charitable donations and grants available only to tax-exempt organizations.
 
OneOC provides community projects and initiatives with expertise and support in the following areas:
 
AccountingAdministrative SupportHuman resource and payrollGrant management servicesContract management servicesRisk management servicesTax‐exempt status for short-term projects and events

OneOC’s services empower companies with the tools to effectively engage their company and employees in achieving positive impact through volunteering and giving services. By equipping businesses with the tools to connect to employee volunteer opportunities and establish branded company giving programs, companies can distinguish themselves as socially engaged and responsible community partners. In partnership with OneOC, businesses now have the support and resources they need to create significant community impact which inspires, equips and mobilizes companies of all sizes. Together, we increase community impact and unite Orange County. Ultimately, we create positive change that benefits all local organizations, employees, and partners.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

OneOC's programs and services work to address the complex combination of knowledge, skills, abilities, education, experiences and values that help nonprofits, and businesses of all sizes to prosper, with revenue-enhancing and cost-reduction services. The nonprofit sector’s capacity to serve the most vulnerable relies on collaboration with local businesses to create long-term prosperity. Besides general field leadership, OneOC also works with companies of all sizes to design and deploy community engagement strategies that further support the work of local nonprofits. With more corporations strategically leveraging employees to help nonprofits, funders looking to drive change, and nonprofits adopting more business-like practices, OneOC continually must strive to strengthen our internal capacity, while improving the quality of our services.

OneOC will help Orange County's nonprofits become as effective and efficient as they are passionate about their missions by improving their mission effectiveness, business efficiency, and strategic execution. In order to this we focus on sustainable business models with a renewed focus on earned revenue, impact-driven investments targeted for accelerated returns and greater impact, and elevating organizational capabilities by embracing a growth mindset.

OneOC’s continued success depends on the diverse skills, experiences and backgrounds that our employees bring to work each day. The demographics of our workforce continue to serve as one measure of progress towards a more diverse and inclusive organization and leader in the sector to our nonprofit peers. In keeping with this mindset, our “boardroom” composition is 50% males and 50% females, with representation from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, and spanning ages from the Millennial through Boomer generations. Each of our 24 members’ similarities, differences and histories enrich and challenge the organization to continually improve the quality of our services and deliver the mission. The executive leadership, Board of Directors and staff are supported by over 150 community leaders, all serving varying areas of expertise and capacities.

Until 2017, OneOC subsidized over half of our programs and services to ensure accessibility to a wide-nonprofit base. With the articulation of OneOC’s 2024 Roadmap, we realized it would be challenging to grow our program impact and invest in providing transformational support without making fundamental changes to our offerings. As a result, we are creating more sustainable service offerings that shift us to a financially sustainable community organization. With this shift, our objective is to scale our offerings and provide deeper levels of support to local nonprofits tackling our community’s greatest issues.
