Since 1937, The James Irvine Foundation has provided more than $1.98 billion in grants to nonprofits working across California, including $105 million in 2019. The singular goal of our grantmaking is a California where all low-income workers have the power to advance economically.
The Irvine Foundation has approximately 50 employees in offices in San Francisco and Los Angeles. We are committed, internally and externally, to the values of partnership, empathy, curiosity, nimbleness, equity, transparency, and accountability.
We hope that our 2019 Year in Review provides insights into some of our work, including the talented leaders and organizations we support.
The Year in Review aims to reflect on the progress we see in our grantmaking as well as other areas of intended impact. 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, 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.
