Investing in Our Children’s Future

From their first day of kindergarten, to the day they walk at graduation, our students have opportunities to explore and learn, to be inspired, and to discover their passions thanks to the generous support of individuals and organizations through Irvine Public Schools Foundation (IPSF). 

Established to build on the success of the last 25 years, the IPSF Endowment Fund creates a long-term and sustainable source of funding for Irvine schools to ensure the advancement of educational excellence for each child in every school, whatever the future may bring

While annual fundraising through the Educational Excellence Fund supports the greatest needs in the current year, the IPSF Endowment Fund creates a consistent funding source to invest in the perpetuity of IPSF’s mission and impact. No other nonprofit in Irvine touches more local families than IPSF as we enrich the educational experience for more than 35,000 students every year. Since 1996, IPSF has funded the people and programs that help set Irvine apart with grants and donations to IUSD totaling more than $80 million. Your donation to the IPSF Endowment Fund is an investment in the future of your community.
