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 alums. Donations go directly to funding innovative instructional materials and best practice programs that would otherwise be impossible.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, since 1991, the Shakopee Educational Endowment Foundation has provided nearly $494,000 in grants to fund projects that directly benefit Shakopee students. SEEF receives proposals in various areas, including science, technology, fine arts, early childhood, and special education, to name just a few. Examples of some of the projects funded include:

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. Donations of $1000 or more receive recognition on the SEEF donor plaque at the Shakopee High School.
