The mission of the Irvine Public Schools Foundation is to enrich the educational experience of each child in every school. We achieve this by providing programs, raising funds, and uniting the community in support of educational excellence.
IPSF believes that effective community support is needed to provide the best educational opportunities for our children. When you make an investment through IPSF, you're making a statement. That you won't settle for mediocre education in your community. That your children deserve the best.
Funding Critical Programs Founded in 1996 by concerned parents and community leaders of Irvine, IPSF raises money to improve Irvine public schools. It pays for teachers and other educators whose positions the state of California does not fund or require but our parents and educators consider necessary for a quality education. IPSF’s role has evolved from providing limited educational enhancements, at a cost of tens of thousands of dollars, to funding critical educational programs at a cost of more than $4 million annually.
Classroom Support IPSF currently pays for classroom support so our children can enjoy reasonable class sizes, science and reading enrichment, music teachers and assistants, college and career counselors, nurses and health clerks among other programs. IPSF’s volunteer board of directors consists of parents, community members, and business leaders from the Irvine community.IPSF has not yet activated their merchant account with Givsum.
