'Double Your Impact' with a Gift to Culture OC

Donations made in July will be doubled up to $5,000!

Summer’s here and most of the 2023-24 performing arts season is over, although there’s still plenty to see through Labor Day. Culture OC is proud of what we’ve accomplished in just 10 busy months. 

Since our launch last September, we’ve published more than 230 stories and won 15 journalism awards and honors. We’ve reviewed every conductor who’s auditioned so far for the top job at Pacific Symphony; covered the diverging post-pandemic fortunes of the arts; examined the increasingly dire landscape for community theater in Orange County; provided you with the ultimate guides to holiday, Fourth of July and Pride celebrations; kept you up-to-date on developments at the Great Park; tipped you off on the best French pastries in the county; marked the passing of O.C. arts leaders and the arrival of others. More often than not, we’re the only professional journalism source for these stories.

But we’re not content to rest on our laurels. Autumn is just around the corner, and we’re gearing up to bring you even more coverage of theater, dance, music, visual arts, community events, food and the restaurant scene in our sophomore year.

To do more, we need your help. We’ve been honored and touched by the generosity of our readers and donors, who supported us well beyond expectations during our crucial first few months. We’re holding a “double your impact” summer fund drive this month. Our goal is to double $5,000 in pledged matching donations from ArtsOC, Soka Performing Arts Center, the Irvine Barclay Theater, Douglas K. Freeman and Christopher Trela.

We’re hoping you’ll do what you can to support quality arts and cultural journalism in Orange County. With your help, we’ll make even more of an impact in 2024-25, deepening our commitment to bring you the kinds of stories about Orange County that you expect and deserve.
