Why Exchange

A Bridge For Greater Social Responsibility

Throughout its long history, The Exchange Clubs’ vision has been to build stronger families, stronger community,  and stronger country and over the years we have seen the positive impact of our contributions.

Expanding this vision, the Exchange Club of Irvine today is a bridge for corporations and individuals to fulfill their social responsibility and support unmet community needs. 

Ways We Build Community Bridges

  • Child Abuse Prevention - Helping reduce the devastating cycle of child abuse


  • Excellence in Teaching - Rewarding Irvine teachers for the difference they make


  • Irvine Police Awards Banquet - Partnering with Irvine Police Department for a safer community


  • Veteran’s Support Events - Honoring those who faithfully serve and protect our country


  • High School and Scholar Athletes - Recognizing contributions of Irvine Youth


  • President’s Circle (Corporate Program) - A bridge for corporations to engage in greater social responsibility


  • Annual Irvine Thanksgiving Prayer Breakfast - Raising awareness and funds for child abuse prevention​


The Irvine Exchange Club has made it possible for The Joyful Child Foundation to train Irvine teachers to empower children to be brave and safe.  Together, we can stop crimes against children.

The Exchange Club of Irvine has been a tremendous partner to our schools, by facilitating programs and services that contribute greatly to our community.  Most notably, they organize the annual Excellence in Teaching Awards, a signature event for our district spotlighting the work of our exceptional educators.
