Our Partners & Sponsors
Our programs are not possible without the generous support of countless volunteers, donors and patrons. From parents who donate to IPEF when they register their child for the next school year, to the teachers who run for Team IPEF, we are grateful for every hour and every dollar individuals in the community donate to IPEF.
IPEF Partners and Sponsors play a very special role. These companies and philanthropic organizations make substantial donations to specific programs, often every year. Some key programs wouldn’t be possible without their support. Learn about IPEF Partners and how they help IPSD204 students.
