FACES of Orange County 2021

Face of Orange County Nonprofit Leadership – Deborah Levy

The Face of Orange County Nonprofit Leadership

Like many successful career women Deborah Levy has worn a lot of hats. From sister, daughter, wife, friend and mother to proud cancer survivor, this former journalist and CBS television news anchor is especially proud of her new “hat”: Executive Director Alzheimer’s Association Orange County.

“I have the privilege of leading the Alzheimer’s Association Orange County Chapter in its mission to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia — From face-to-face support and education programs, a 24/7 helpline, to promising worldwide research initiatives. The more people know about Alzheimer’s, the more action we inspire. Of course, I will need the Orange County community’s help in achieving our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s and I encourage anyone wanting to support our cause to contact me directly.”

A Southern California native, Deborah has had a career trajectory that has been by all accounts, extremely successful. She’s led other best-in-class non-profits, including Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California. She notes that while she is proud of raising more than $100m for organizations that are changing the world, at the end of the day it’s the people she’s met along the way that really count.

“It’s the relationships that I have built with people that I’m most thankful for. Trust. Integrity. Kindness. Tenacity. Empowering and helping others. These are the guiding principles that form the foundation of my success.”
