There are a lot of nonprofit organizations you can help. Many are good, some are great. Some are not worth the investment. How can you possibly be knowledgeable about them all? Fortunately you don’t have to be.

When you make a donation to or start a fund at the Eden Prairie Community Foundation, we use our leadership and our knowledge of Eden Prairie to get the biggest impact with your gift. So, why entrust us with your donation dollars?

Reason 1: No One Knows Eden Prairie Nonprofits Like We Do

We routinely meet with community leaders and volunteers, as well as nonprofit leaders, to learn more about Eden Prairie’s greatest needs, and what’s on the horizon.

Reason 2: No One Can Hold Nonprofits Accountable Like We Do

We use a Grants Committee composed of board members and citizens to review and filter grant applications so that the greatest community needs receive your dollars. Then we require grant recipients to document the impact they’ve had.

Reason 3: No One Understands Eden Prairie’s Needs Like We Do

Our bylaws require that board members come from a wide cross-section of the community — people from city government, schools, the business community, clergy, and civic organizations. That means our knowledge of Eden Prairie is wide, and deep.
