The Mission of the Democratic Foundation of Orange County is to Elect Democrats to local and statewide offices.
Electing Democrats is what we do. This includes electing Democrats locally and ensuring state and national candidates perform well in Orange County. We do this by focusing on our core strategies:
- SUPPORT. Develop financial resources and strategically support candidates in close races to ensure we add to our Democratic numbers and flip toss-up seats.
- EDUCATE. Provide a forum to discuss public policy issues of local and national importance by hearing from academics, elected officials, activists and community leaders.
- OUTREACH. Lead and partner with community groups to register Democrats and increase our presence in the community at large.
- ACCESS. Provide our members with intimate access to local, California and national Democratic leaders, as well as to special events with leaders in labor and business.
Over the years, our members have enjoyed access to exclusive gatherings with major leaders, including: President Bill Clinton, Vice-President Al Gore, Governor Gavin Newsom, Governor Gray Davis (ret.), Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis, US Senator Dianne Feinstein, US Senator Barbara Boxer (ret.), US Senator Bernie Sanders, Congressman Adam Schiff, Congresswoman Katie Porter, Congressman Lou Correa, Congressman Mike Levin, Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (ret.), California State Controller Betty Yee, Attorney General Xavier Becerra, Assembly Speaker John Perez (ret.), State Treasurer Bill Lockyer (ret.), State Treasurer John Chiang (ret.), Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, Sacramento Mayor Darryl Steinberg, and many others.
DFOC members also have benefited from special access to the Democratic National Convention and the President’s Inauguration in Washington, DC.
