City of Irvine

The City of Irvine is deeply committed to education, and has established a Challenge Match Grant in support of education, 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, challenging local business and community members to actively support education.



FivePoint has been a longtime supporter of IPSF, with a history of commitment to innovation and education. They were the first company to join us in support of the Irvine CubeSat STEM Program, and have been the title sponsor of the annual Spirit of Excellence Gala since it’s inception.



Operating in Irvine for over thirty years, Maruchan has extended their commitment to providing quality products to include supporting the local community as well. With their dedicated support of Irvine schools for nearly a decade, the company serves as a model for the impact that private support can make on public schools.

A wholesale and manufacturing company, Howard Core specializes in the violin family of stringed instruments and have attained a reputation for honest value and excellence. Howard Core supports IPSF’s Instrument Rental program, making more high quality instruments available to students so that they may enjoy the benefits of music education.
