Overview


Mission Statement

Assistance League volunteers transforming lives of children and adults through community program.

Background Statement

Assistance League of Irvine (ALI) is one of 120 chapters of Assistance League, a nationwide nonprofit organization. ALI is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization; we have no paid staff. Every year our dedicated volunteer base grows in strength and hours given, thereby enabling us to provide greater benefits to the community in which we live and work. During Fiscal Year 2017-18, 24,551 service hours were dedicated by Assistance League of Irvine volunteers to enrich and improve the lives of Irvine residents who, for any number of reasons, find themselves in a time of need. By building on our past, collaborating with others in our community and, most importantly, by working together, we are committed to a better tomorrow.


Impact Statement

Since our formation in 1990, Assistance League of Irvine programs:
1. Have provided new school clothing and school supplies through our Operation School Bell® program to approximately 18,000 children in need within the Irvine Unified School District (IUSD).
2. Showcased the talents of more than 15,500 IUSD students in grades K-6 during the annual Young Masters Art Show
3. Awarded more than $70,000 in scholarships to income-qualified single parents attending Irvine Valley College. In 2014, we expanded our IVC Scholarship Program awarding an additional $30,000 each year to qualifying IUSD graduating seniors and established Prep for Success, an ACT/SAT review class.
4. Through our collaborative efforts with Human Options and Families Forward we provide emergency clothing and essential personal and household supplies to hundreds of abused women and their children seeking shelter and assistance, and other area families in need.
5. Our newest Philanthropy, the Creative Educators Award funded Deerfield Elementary School program calledFlock Together Student Leadership administered by Amber Smith. The Program helps develop skills in leadership and servanthood by connecting students to service-learning opportunities, at their school and in the community.  The second grant award was to a Jeffrey Trail Middle School program called J.E.T. Setters (JET=Joining Everyone Together) managed by Julianne Jong & Michelle Trapp. This program’s design is to cultivate and maintain a school culture where all students and families feel welcome and connected to their school and their community.

Board Chair Statement

Irvine has a wonderful and well-deserved reputation. It’s the Safest Big City in America for cities with populations over 100,000. Its five high schools are consistently ranked among the nation’s best by U.S. News and World Report. The median household income is just shy of $100,000. 

But there are those in our community who are less fortunate and need our help. Improving and enhancing their quality of life is the mission of Assistance League of Irvine (ALI).

ALI is a 100 percent all-volunteer organization. We have no paid staff. Virtually 100 percent of the funds expended on our philanthropic programs are spent in Irvine for the benefit of Irvine residents in need and income-qualified students attending Irvine Valley College. We take great pride in the impact our efforts make in our city.

With your help we can do even more. Please help us empower Irvine residents to achieve their full potential through access to education, the arts and human services.

Other Ways to Donate/Volunteer

Donors may mail a check, make in-kind donations or get involved in our Young Masters Art Show. We would like community partners & volunteers at our Young Masters event.
