Here’s How You Can Give Back to Eden Prairie
There are many great ways to support your friends and neighbors — by participating in events and volunteering, for example. Giving a donation is also a wonderful way to give back to Eden Prairie. It fuels the Eden Prairie Community Foundation so that it can continue its good works, now and in the future!
With a donation, you are supporting the Foundation’s work to make Eden Prairie better — continuing a tradition that goes back to 1981. But there are other ways you can give back to Eden Prairie through the Foundation, including:
- Start a fund at the Foundation, and help a cause near and dear to you.
- Support one of the organizations or projects that already has a fund with the Foundation.
- Attend one or both of our annual fundraising events, EP Gives (spring) and Prairie Brewfest (fall).
- Or volunteer to serve on a Foundation committee or the board of directors.
We can help you decide which of these “giving back” options is best for you. Contact the Foundation’s executive director, Mark Weber, at (952) 949-8499 or [email protected].
The Foundation is making a difference! Won’t you join us? Here’s what one recent recipient of a Foundation grant had to say:
“Thank you for your recent grant of $3,000 to be used for bus passes and grocery gift cards as part of our Backpacks for Homeless Youth campaign. We are very fortunate to have a community that cares deeply about homeless youth — and a Community Foundation that translates that concern into action.” – Janet Palmer, PROP Executive Director
