50th Anniversary Project


The Orange County Buddhist Church (OCBC) 50th Anniversary Project is a major construction and renovation project to upgrade the OCBC facilities to meet the needs of our growing
Jodo Shinshu community. Fundraising to support this ambitious $9.3M project began in 2008.

In 2013, having raised over $5M of the goal, OCBC began Phase 1 construction of the two story 12,300 square feet social hall, kitchen, studio and office building. That structure was completed in 2014 with no construction loan. Fundraising continued in earnest for Phase 2, the renovation of the Hondo and Naijin altar, a new MPB gym floor, and a new courtyard to integrate the campus facilities.

The project is now in its final stages. Construction is scheduled to be completed in August 2017 and fundraising is also nearing completion. As of June 2017, OCBC needed only $78.000 to reach its $9.3M goal enabling full funding of the entire construction project!

If you haven’t yet contributed, please consider donating now to help reach our goal. If you are among the many who’ve already donated multiple times, perhaps you can help just a little more to get us over this last hump. Be counted among those who can proudly say, “I helped Complete the Dream!”
