Educational Excellence Starts Here
Irvine Public Schools Foundation was founded in 1996 to help ensure educational excellence in our public schools. Donations from parents, community, and corporate partners make it possible for us to pursue our mission of enriching the educational experience of each child in every school by providing programs, raising funds, and uniting the community in support of education. Since our founding, IPSF has donated more than $100 million in grants and program support to Irvine Unified School District to benefit our schools and students.
From speech and debate, to cooking and robotics, IPSF afterschool and summer programs provide students with opportunities to discover new interests and pursue passions that would not otherwise be possible. When students are able to think big and follow their dreams, amazing things can happen!
Irvine Public Schools Foundation provides affordable, quality programs for over 15,000 students each year to enrich and expand learning opportunities beyond the classroom, both after school and during the summer. Each program offers need-based scholarship assistance to ensure that all students can participate regardless of their ability to pay. Equitable access to enrichment programs across the district helps to develop well-rounded students and close the achievement gap.
Support for Schools
IPSF is proud to donate over $5 million in grants, donations and program support to IUSD each year. These contributions support the people that make our schools special including more teachers and assistants, primary music teachers, mental health staff, and athletic trainers. Funds also support programs that set our schools apart including innovation grants, Science Fair, and Irvine Talks, among others. Parents donations make a positive impact on your child’s education, and with your help, we can continue to support your student and every child in IUSD in meaningful ways!
Uniting The Community
It takes a diverse and dedicated community to keep education at the leading edge. By leveraging collective resources, IPSF helps to ensure a sustainable model for educational excellence that can endure the volatility of state funding for education. IPSF raises funds to ensure educational equity across the school district, serving each child in every school. Thanks to donations to Irvine Public Schools Foundation, students have opportunities that would not otherwise be possible. A community united in support of education is the difference in Irvine!
