Disneyland Resort Surprises ACT Anaheim with Million Dollar Dazzle Grant

Posted by: Connect OC on 3/9/2016
In January, the Disneyland Resort surprised the Orange County Community Foundation with a Million Dollar Dazzle grant of $60,000 in support of ACT Anaheim. The funds will provide professional development opportunities to nonprofit leaders serving youth through the ACT initiative and further enhance the ways they are making a difference.

The surprise took place at a gathering of ACT funders and grant recipients who were meeting for an update on the progress of ACT. At the conclusion of the reception, Disneyland Resort President Michael Colglazier took the podium and wowed the 100 business, community and nonprofit leaders in attendance when he introduced the Disneyland Resort’s Million Dollar Dazzle Crew to present ACT Anaheim with a surprise check for $60,000.

ACT Anaheim was launched in 2013 to help Anaheim youth overcome the challenges that put them at risk after the Anaheim Youth Services Assessment Report, a study funded by the Disneyland Resort, revealed both challenges and opportunities facing Anaheim youth and the providers that serve them.

“Armed with those findings, we understood better how to make a real difference in the lives of Anaheim youth,” said Michael Colglazier, president of the Disneyland Resort.

And to make that difference, Disneyland Resort engaged Angels Baseball and the Anaheim Ducks to form ACT Anaheim and asked OCCF to serve as managing partner of the initiative. ACT Anaheim is on pace to build a foundation for lasting change in Anaheim – and Disneyland Resort continues to look out for its Anaheim neighbors.

“It’s so exciting to see ACT Anaheim move from concept to results in such a short amount of time,” added Colglazier. “Keeping the momentum going is what matters now, and the Disneyland Resort is committed to doing just that.”

The Million Dollar Dazzle program was launched as part of the Disneyland Resort’s Diamond Celebration. Each month, the Dazzle Crew surprises one or more local nonprofits that are enriching the lives of children and families in our community with a $60,000 gift, totaling more than $1 million.
