Meeting the Needs of Orange County’s Hispanic Youth
The Orange County Hispanic Education Endowment Fund (HEEF) provides community and financial support for students at all levels along the education continuum. An unprecedented initiative for Orange County, HEEF has been established to support scholarships, programs and institutions that respond to the needs of Hispanic youth in order to inspire, enhance and improve educational opportunities.
HEEF’s goal is to enhance educational opportunities and resources at early ages to reduce school dropout rates and to improve students’ educational expectations and opportunities. The Fund is a resource to academically talented Hispanic youth that need to overcome barriers to a college degree. Since 1996, HEEF has awarded over $1.6 million in scholarships to over 1,500 deserving individuals. HEEF is a component fund of the Orange County Community Foundation (OCCF), which was founded in 1989 to serve as a charitable organization for local needs. OCCF’s investment guidelines ensure the best return possible while protecting the Fund’s principal. Each year, Moss Adams LLP independently audits the Orange County Community Foundation. OC NAHREP and Windermere Real Estate in Brea have partnered to award Lucia Camacho, a scholarship to assist in the furtherance of her educational goals.
Lucia Camacho Lucia, who has been raised by her
Mom, will be the first person in her entire family to attend College.

Lucia participates in many extracurricular activities which include several sports, Youth Leadership America, Senator Lou Correa’s Young Senators and several on campus clubs. With this
busy schedule of activities Lucia has maintained a 3.85 GPA and will be attending UCLA in the Fall.
