When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.
~ Maya Angelou


In the 1990’s it began as a personal journey. Lou E. Perez recognized the dire need of financial assistance for parents and families of sick children and personally decided to help. Over time, he recognized the greater need within Orange County and the foundation was created in 2003 so that others could also get involved.

Since then, the foundation has made this time of difficulty a bit easier on the families by providing contributions for basic necessities and family needs. With the help of many generous individuals and corporations, support is given for rent, mortgage payments, car costs, travel, utilities, groceries, hospital bills, and many other items.

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.
~ Winston S. Churchill


Based in Orange County California, the Lou E. Perez Foundation proudly partners with some of the most-respected hospitals, children’s care centers and schools in the region.

A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.
