It’s because of donors like you that kids, older adults, people living with disabilities, and others in Eden Prairie have the services they need. Are you ready to maximize your philanthropic impact, and do it quickly?
We’ve developed some giving suggestions with very specific impacts, and you can make the donations below.
The first four of the following suggested donation levels directly help young people in Eden Prairie (three are tied to the Foundation’s Youth Initiative). The fifth suggestion is the average size of a Foundation annual grant to fill a community need in the areas of arts and culture, education, recreation and environment, or social services.
If you feel moved to make a Give-and-Go Donation, use the form below and make a payment using a credit card. Be sure to scroll all the way down the donation form! Here are your donation options:
$100 = provides a local youngster, whose family is likely low-income, a scholarship to an after-school activity such as swimming lessons, driver’s education, enrichment classes, sports, theater, and more

$300 = buys one of each school-supply item that the Eden Prairie Schools-School Supply Fund has on its Amazon “wish list” of items most needed by EP schoolchildren. About 700 students are reached in this program.
