Since 1937, The James Irvine Foundation has provided more than $1.87 billion in grants to nonprofits working across California, including $95.9 million in 2018. The singular goal of our grantmaking is a California where all low-income workers have the power to advance economically.
We hope that our 2017 Year in Review provides insights into some of our work, the talented leaders and organizations that we are privileged to support.
The Year in Review is developed each year to reflect on the progress we’re seeing in our grantmaking as well as other areas that we believe contribute to our impact as an institution. It also includes information on the diversity of our staff and board and investment policies.
Our goal is to provide more transparency about who we are, what we fund, what we’re learning, and where we’re headed.
Glass Pockets is an initiative of the Foundation Center designed to promote online transparency and accountability among large private foundations. Irvine is committed to transparency, and we invite you to take a look at our Glass Pockets profile.
