IRVINE, CA (September 9, 2019) — The Orange County Business Journal announces the 50 most community-minded companies in Orange County. The Civic 50 Orange County, presented by the Orange County Business Journal (OCBJ) in partnership with OneOC, provides a local standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and other resources to improve the quality of life in the community where they do business.

Since 2012, The Civic 50 has recognized the 50 most community-minded companies in the nation each year as determined by an annual survey developed by True Impact. For Orange County, honorees were determined using True Impact’s adapted national Civic 50 online survey that is independently administered and scored.

Companies were selected based upon four dimensions of their community engagement programs: investment, integration, institutionalization and impact.

The third annual Civic 50 OC Awards Luncheon will be held October 16, 2019 at the Hotel Irvine featuring keynote speaker Neil Bush, Chairman of Points of Light. All 50 honorees will be recognized at the event, and five awards will be given.

The Civic 50 OC List and Special Report will be published October 21, 2019 in the Business Journal.
