Why Support the Ebell Club of
Because Ebell Has Supported Our Community for Over 75 years...
Laguna Beach is a unique community in so many ways. Its residents
consistently vote to support our schools, help victims of natural
disasters, assist the homeless and low-income families, and maintain
open spaces, public parks and the arts.
Although Laguna Beach is listed ninth in median household income in
Orange County, it was ranked number one in a recent Orange County
cost of living index. This means there are many families in our
community who need the community's support and assistance.
As an all-volunteer organization, the Ebell Club has supported the
Laguna Beach community for over 75 years. Following are some of the
many programs and organizations that depend on Ebell's support:
Ebell Supports Our Community's Senior Citizens
Sally's Fund. Nearly one third
of Laguna Beach residents are over 60 years of age. Since 1982,
Sally's Fund has made it possible for the Senior Citizens of Laguna
Beach to continue living independently by providing transportation
and other essential services.
Susi Q Senior Center works with other nonprofits and the city to provide
access to programs and services that promote independence, wellness,
and community. In February 2009, after years of fundraising and
planning, the Center celebrated its Grand Opening.
Ebell Supports Our Community's Families in Need
is the only year-round homeless shelter in South Orange County.
Their 60-day self-sufficiency program always has a waiting list. The
shelter provides a home, meals and a wide range of support services
for men and women.
Relief and Resource Center provides a broad range of homeless
assistance, low income family assistance and disaster response,
including functioning as the lead 501(c)3 charitable organization
through which the community supported those affected by the Bluebird
Laguna Beach Community Clinic provides quality medical, dental and health education services to
low-income and uninsured residents of Orange County through a
sliding fee scale and public support funds.
Ebell Supports Our Community's Youth

juvenile crime doubles during after school hours. The Boys and Girls
Club provides our youth a safe and affordable environment during the
summer and after school.

League, and other youth oriented programs.
Ebell Supports Our Community's Schools
In the 1930's the Ebell Club of Laguna Beach awarded the very first
scholarship to a
High School (LBHS) student. That was just the beginning. Today,
Ebell provides four scholarships to LBHS and one to Laguna Beach
College of Art and Design. While most scholarships are awarded based
on need, Ebell awards scholarships based on academics and community
service. Our philosophy: By recognizing and rewarding those who
strive for excellence, we encourage and inspire tomorrow's leaders
One Success Story
One of our latest scholarship recipients not only worked an
incredible 392 volunteer hours, but also was on the LBHS honor role
all four years. For the past five summers, she has been a counselor
for mentally and physically challenged children at "Special Camp for
Special Kids." She was also Treasurer and Fundraising Committee
Chair of the National Honor Society. This recipient now studies
biomedical engineering at the University of Michigan.
