BENEFITING: IRVINGTON EDUCATION FOUNDATION INC
Dave and Amy Jones
The Irvington Education Foundation began in 1996 by a group of concerned citizens when budget cuts threatened to eliminate the drama program from the high school curriculum. With the support of the Irvington Board of Education, the IEF became a not-for-profit 501c tax-exempt organization incorporated in the State of New York and raised the funds needed to save the drama program. The Directors of the IEF quickly realized that through private dollars educational enrichment programs could be offered to students in all schools. It's mission was born: to raise and distribute funds for programs that enrich the educational experiences of the district's children above and beyond the limits of the public school budget.
