Since 1981 , folks just like you have used the Eden Prairie Community Foundation as a vehicle to to assist families and individuals living in poverty, help fund vital services to older adults and people with disabilities, strengthen community services, and provide scholarships and access to after-school programs to local youth. Because of your donations, the Foundation has awarded direct grants to organizations and programs such as Meals on Wheels, Camp Eden Wood, Chrestomathy, the Eden Prairie Fire Department, Cornerstone, PROP, The PROP Shop, the EP Veterans Memorial, and many others -- actually, about 100 organizations in all. When all funds are considered, the Foundation has generated more than $1 million in philanthropy in the last five years. Increasingly, the Foundation is filling funding gaps in the community, collaborating with non-profits, and providing the leadership to anticipate important Eden Prairie issues beyond the horizon. Your support is needed at this difficult time. Donate here to the Foundation or its community-impact funds, or visit our website at www.epcommunityfoundation.org for more information.
