Be a part of our growing movement to create a critical mass of great schools, families that demand them, and systems that support them.

A great school is possible for every child, with your help.

Over the last few years, schools we’ve invested in and the community organizations we’ve partnered with have demonstrated remarkable adaptability, creativity, and unwavering focus. In the wake of the pandemic, the educational landscape has presented stark and disconcerting statistics. Students from all walks of life have fallen behind in their education, with marginalized communities disproportionately affected. This situation demands immediate attention, as we cannot afford to hinder this generation’s dreams and aspirations due to the challenges they face.

We count on your support to make a lasting impact on students in our city.

Thank you to everyone who has already contributed to our work. If you haven’t already given this year, please make arrangements today to invest in our 2024 campaign to raise 4.7 million dollars to ensure every child in Minneapolis is getting the education they deserve.



Every gift matters, and it is our collective power that brings us closer to the day that all Minneapolis children benefit from a great school preparing them to thrive in their lives, careers, and community.
