We are focused on removing financial barriers to participation for the 9% of Edina Public School students who are economically disadvantaged. We provide financial scholarships for students to participate in academic, arts and athletic activities that exist within the community.

We have strategically aligned our organization with key community partners, in order to develop relationships with students and families so we can support student interests within extracurricular activities.

Collaborative partnerships, including being a mission-aligned school district partner Community outreach and organization Development planning and execution

Increased impact and reach for the roughly 750 students in Edina Public Schools that meet our granting guidelines. Increased access to programs where scholarship dollars weren't available historically.

We have granted over $250,000 in the organization's history to over 300+ students and look forward to continuing to determine how we build capacity and explore new areas where there are currently financial barriers to access for students.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
