Set aside April 27, 2017 for The GIVE Gathering

If you’ve ever thought about being an Eden Prairie volunteer – or you belong to a group that needs EP volunteers – then you should save this date on your calendar: Thursday, April 27, 2017.

That’s when “The GIVE Gathering” will be held, from 6-8 p.m. at the Eden Prairie Education Center, 8040 Mitchell Road (the same building that houses the Eden Prairie City Center, or city hall).

This is a first-time event that is for prospective volunteers and the organizations that need them.

If you’re looking to volunteer your time in a way that makes Eden Prairie better, this event will allow you to:

  • Visit a Volunteer Fair, featuring lots of local “giving back” opportunities;
  • Join in a group service project benefiting Eden Prairie; and
  • Sign up to win prizes.

If you are civic organization or nonprofit that depends on members or volunteers to make Eden Prairie great, this event will allow you to:

  • Get training on how to reach, engage, and manage new members and volunteers;
  • Host a table at the Volunteer Fair; and
  • Share information about how your organization is making a difference in Eden Prairie.

Admission is free, and we’ll have a food truck where you can purchase a snack. Many details are yet to come, and you will find them at

The GIVE Gathering is sponsored by Eden Prairie Schools Community Education and the Eden Prairie Community Foundation – two organizations working to inspire volunteering in Eden Prairie.

We hope you’ll join us on April 27!
