Exchange Club of Irvine

Serving with pride for over 40 years.

Welcome to the Exchange Club of Irvine

There is an organization that has been quietly, yet powerfully, working behind the scenes to help shape the community of Irvine as we know it today.  For over 45 years, they’ve been connecting corporations and individuals to the heartbeat of the community. They do this by recognizing unsung heroes like first responders, empowering teachers and youth, helping bring an end to to the cycle of child abuse and honoring our military.

Who is this “stealth-like” service organization making these positive things happen? It’s the Exchange Club of Irvine, whose vision for building stronger community might just surprise you.
