About the Orange County Citizens Foundation: For nearly 50 years, the Citizens Foundation is a membership-based, non-governmental organization that improves quality of life for Orange County residents through public policy and advocacy in land use and transportation planning, downtown revitalization through place-making, water conservation, waste management, cultural affairs, education, agriculture, recreation and healthcare. The Citizens Foundation is housed on 50 acres of bucolic farmland, formerly the home of Surrealist artist Kurt Seligmann. On these Sugar Loaf grounds, known as the Seligmann Center at the Citizens Foundation, the organization brings together community, business and political members to share ideas and create new quality-of-life initiatives for Orange County. Public programming includes arts and culture exhibits and performances at the Seligmann Center, political debates and forums, and thought provoking workshops.
