Irvine Public Schools Foundation (IPSF), a nonprofit organization focused on enriching the educational experience of each child in every school, hosted 120 golfers at its sold-out 2023 Tee It Up for Education Golf Tournament on Wednesday, October 18, at Strawberry Farms Golf Course in Irvine. Tournament Co-Chairs Po Chen of Anchor QEA and Matt Hoffman of Deloitte welcomed Orange County civic, business, and education leaders County to golf and help raise over $170,000 with matching support from the City of Irvine to support all 44 public schools in Irvine.  

“We are incredibly grateful to our generous sponsors, parents, and community leaders who are dedicated to supporting our mission and helping us raise funds to support critical programming in IUSD schools,” said Neda Eaton, President and CEO of IPSF. “We’re fortunate to have many new and loyal supporters who invest in tomorrow’s leaders and the future of our community.”

 Irvine Unified School District (IUSD) is among the fastest-growing school districts in the U.S. and is also one of the lowest-funded, receiving nearly $3,000 less per student, per year, than the national average. Irvine Public Schools Foundation (IPSF) is an independent nonprofit organization that supports IUSD by raising funds for teachers, staff, and essential programs, providing afterschool and summer courses to enrich education beyond the classroom, and uniting the community in support of educational excellence.
