How IPEF Works With You
If your community service or philanthropic goals include supporting children and education, you won’t find a better partner than IPEF. As the only 501(c)(3) non-profit focused solely on enriching education for IPSD204 students, IPEF is an effective way to channel your charitable giving in a direct and responsible manner.

IPEF operates lean, with no capital or real property expenditures, and we have a 30+ year history of fiscal responsibility. Should you choose to make an unrestricted donation to IPEF, your funds are applied to those programs with the greatest current need. If you prefer to target your giving to a specific program as a sponsor, 100% of your donation is applied to that program. In either case, you receive a full accounting of how your funds were used and their impact on IPSD204 students.

How You Can Help

Sponsor a Program
Many of our corporate, community and philanthropic partners wish to support a specific program which is most closley aligned with their giving goals. We’d love to start a conversation about how we can work with you to do the same.

 Sponsor a Program ❤

Sponsor TEAM IPEF.
In addition to our army of Charity Runners, TEAM IPEF relies on the generous contributions of corporate and community partners. Sponsors are acknowledged and their businesses promoted at all TEAM IPEF activities through and including Race Day. Kids Marathon sponsors can set up a promotional booth at the race.

Make A Donation.
We are always grateful to receive donations, but especially during times of hardship, such as the Covid-19 pandemic. Several area companies and service organizations contact IPEF to support families in need, as we can quickly direct their dollars where they are needed most.
