Our donors, event attendees, and fund holders make good things happen in Eden Prairie.

Your neighbors give back to Eden Prairie in a wide range of ways — by making a donation or starting a fund, to name two examples.

Here are examples of people increasing the impact of their giving through the Eden Prairie Community Foundation. If you’d like to learn more about these opportunities, or how donating to the Foundation helps you give more effectively, please reach out to us.
