Welcome to the Exchange Club of Irvine
There is an organization that has been quietly, yet powerfully, working behind the scenes to help shape the community of Irvine as we know it today. For over 45 years, they’ve been connecting corporations and individuals to the heartbeat of the community. They do this by recognizing unsung heroes like first responders, empowering teachers and youth, helping bring an end to to the cycle of child abuse and honoring our military.
Who is this “stealth-like” service organization making these positive things happen? It’s the Exchange Club of Irvine, whose vision for building stronger community might just surprise you.

The History of Exchange
The National Exchange Club — A service organization with 700 clubs and more than 21,000
members throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Founded in 1911 in Detroit,
The Exchange Club was founded for the purpose of “exchanging” ideas to build better
community and it was the first, national community service organization to recruit women
as members. For over a hundred years, Exchange Club volunteer efforts have supported
the needs of the country and of local communities, making it the oldest American service
organization operating exclusively in the United States.
