IAC Charitable Foundation


IAC Charitable Foundation

Whether it’s supporting the arts, investing in education, endowing skills in technology, or helping local communities, IAC is committed to creating positive change, one life at a time. Our giving strategy has always been hyper-local by design, made possible by a network of trusted partners. We aim to go deep versus wide with our resources to make the greatest possible impact on our neighbors and surrounding communities by improving educational and economic opportunities.


Areas of Focus

  • Education, Inclusion, & Opportunity

    Empowering a new generation of leaders starts with quality education for all young people regardless of their socioeconomic background. At IAC, we want to give children and young adults opportunities that help them reach their full potential. Our programs and partners help achieve that vision.

  • Civic & Community Engagement

    IAC understands that education is only one factor determining a person’s long-term success and creating positive community experiences. In addition to our educational programs and partnerships, we engage in civic and community initiatives to broaden our impact outside the classroom.

  • Arts & Culture

    We value creative contributions to our community through arts and culture and support partnerships that span from music to theater.

Scholarship Program

IAC Charitable Foundation awards scholarships to high-achieving, high-performing students from historically and systemically underrepresented communities. The program's independent scholarship selection committee will award scholarships up to $10,000 for specific academic related purposes as informed by the student’s application and approved by the committee, such as tuition, textbooks, technology, and on-campus housing.  

The 2024 IAC Charitable Foundation Scholarship application will open August 1, 2024 and close September 20, 2024. To stay informed on the upcoming cycle of the scholarship program, sign up for our newsletter.
