The James Irvine Foundation



The James Irvine Foundation was established in 1937 by James Irvine himself as a primary stockholder of The Irvine Company.


The guiding principle of the foundation is the idea of expanding opportunity.



The goals of the foundation is to advance the educational and economic prospects of low-income Californians to share in and create California's prosperity; to engage a broad cross section of Californians in the civic and cultural life of their communities and the state; to enhance mutual understanding and communication among diverse, racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups; and enrich the state's intellectual and creative environment.
