Shakopee Educational Endowment Foundation

A nonprofit organization

SEEF's mission is to preserve and enhance the quality of education in the Shakopee School District by funding projects that provide innovative learning opportunities for our students. 

Through our Teacher Grant Program, Shakopee Educational Endowment Foundation enables educators to test new ideas, attempt creative programming, or incorporate new technology that otherwise would not be funded – all of which support valuable educational experiences for Shakopee students. The foundation operates independently of Shakopee Public Schools as a charitable foundation and relies on generous contributions from businesses, service organizations, school district staff, community members, and alumni. Donations go directly to funding innovative instructional materials and best practice programs that otherwise would not be possible. 

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, since 1991 the Shakopee Educational Endowment Foundation has provided nearly $440,000 in grants to fund projects that directly benefit Shakopee students. SEEF receives proposals in a variety of areas including science, technology, fine arts, early childhood, and special education, to name just a few. Examples of some of the projects funded include:

  • Online learning resources for pre-K to 5th-grade students to support the
     changing educational needs of distance learning during the pandemic
  • Enhanced science curriculum for kindergarten and 5th grade
  • Interactive vocabulary books for Special Education students in Grades K-12
  • Outdoor communication boards for preschool students

Please consider a tax-deductible donation as your investment in our children's future. The effect of your gift will be felt for years to come. Gifts of $1000 or more receive recognition on the SEEF donor plaque at the Shakopee High School.
