Federal Tax Returns Print E-mail

As an independent, nonprofit foundation, The James Irvine Foundation files a federal tax return each year, known as Form 990-PF. In addition, as a consequence of some of our investments, we also file a corporate tax return, known as Form 990-T. These tax returns capture financial data, including the fair market value of all assets, an analysis of revenue and expenses, and a complete listing of grants paid.

We post our annual tax return on this website soon after it is filed with the IRS each year. This usually occurs in November because the Foundation holds private equity investments, and year-end data on these investments is generally not available until late the following year.
