Local Schools

The Irvine Unified School District, Tustin Unified School District, University of California at Irvine, Concordia University, and Irvine Valley College, provide high quality public and private education in Irvine. In addition, the University of Southern California (Orange County Center) and Chapman University (Brandman) have satellite campuses located in town. All educational institutions in Irvine accept donations. Donations to the Irvine Unified School District can be made through the Irvine Public Schools Foundation.


If libraries are your passion, the Orange County Library System operates three libraries in Irvine at Heritage Park, University Park, and the Katie Wheeler Library.

Community Services

The City of Irvine offers a Scholarship Program to help low-income Irvine residents participate in programs offered through the Community Services Department. The program has limited funds available. Scholarships are granted on a first-come basis after applications are reviewed and approved. The program may be closed to new applications when funds run low. Other locally-based charitable organizations related to education can be found on the City’s website.
