Company Description

The James Irvine Foundation's mission is to expand opportunity for the people of California to participate in a vibrant, successful and inclusive society. James Irvine, a California agricultural pioneer, established the Foundation in 1937 to benefit the people of California. Since then, the Foundation has met the objectives of its founder by providing more than $1.3 billion in grants to over 3,500 nonprofit organizations across the state. The guiding principle in all our grantmaking is the idea of expanding opportunity. In our Youth program, that means helping students build a strong foundation for college and career success. In the Arts, it means fostering creativity and nurturing a rich cultural environment. And through our California Democracy program, it means advancing effective public policy decision making that is reflective of and responsive to all Californians. Our Goals In pursuing our mission, we are guided by the following goals: Advance the educational and economic prospects of low-income Californians to share in and create California's prosperity. Engage a broad cross section of Californians in the civic and cultural life of their communities and the state. Enhance mutual understanding and communication among diverse racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups. Enrich the state's intellectual and creative environment.
