City of Irvine

Irvine is a city built around education, quite literally, with neighborhoods planned and developed with schools at their heart. So it is no surprise that education is a priority in the community. Students consistently score at the top of state standardized test rankings, and schools are routinely recognized both regionally and nationally, for excellence in everything from math and science, to music and writing.

This commitment was solidified with the establishment of the City of Irvine Challenge Match Grant in support of education and intended to inspire community participation in bridging the growing gap between state funding and school district needs. The program matches all funds raised through IPSF, up to $1.3 million annually.

Thanks to a challenge grant from the City of Irvine, all contributions to IPSF are matched dollar for dollar, doubling the impact to our students.

Creative partnerships with the City of Irvine, local businesses, and community leaders with Irvine Public Schools Foundation, have provided additional sources of funding that help sustain and enhance crucial programs that might otherwise not be possible.
