We are pleased to share with you our 2011 Performance Report in a new online format. While it includes many of the features of a traditional foundation annual report, our aim with this publication is to go beyond that approach and give you a deeper look at the Foundation’s progress toward its long-term goals.

This report is based on the Annual Performance Report that we make each year to Irvine’s Board of Directors as a way to measure our impact and hold ourselves accountable. It examines the progress we’re seeing in our core grantmaking programs, as well as other areas that we believe contribute to our impact as an institution. If you’re interested in reading this longer, more detailed document, it is available on our website.

This year we are experimenting with a new online format that we think will prove more inviting and accessible to our readers. At the heart of the report is the Program Impact section, which offers highlights of key developments in each of our three grantmaking programs and Special Initiatives. In the Leadership section, we describe ways we have used Irvine’s voice to enhance the work we’re supporting through grants. And finally, we look at Irvine’s financial and organizational health using a variety of quantitative measures.

This online publication represents the latest evolution in our approach to reporting on our impact. In that sense, it is a work in progress, and we welcome your thoughts and ideas about how to make it better.
