Among Orange County's many treasures, the exemplary network of local nonprofit organizations may be our most valuable asset. But fulfilling a charitable mission year after year is like running a marathon that never ends. To be successful, nonprofits must have the right team behind them. They have to hit “mile markers” to demonstrate their progress. They fuel their efforts with the time, talent and treasure of their donors and board leaders. And a large crew of volunteers cheers them on, running by their side every step of the way.
