Giving Guidelines

We believe that every student deserves access to the programming that exists in our community. That’s why we work to remove financial barriers by providing scholarship grants so students can participate in academic, arts and athletic opportunities.

Here at Edina Give and Go, we fund:

  • Arts, Academic and Athletic programs in our community
  • $500 per student per year for individual requests
  • We ask that families contribute 10% of the total funds requested from Edina Give and Go

Edina Give and Go does NOT fund:

  • Basic needs like clothing and food
  • Please reach out to the Edina Resource Center for basic need questions and resources contact@edinaresourcecenter.com or 952-848-3936

Our Process:

  • Cash is not released directly to families. Funds are paid directly to the program
  • Families demonstrate need of 200% of the poverty level for their family size (see chart on application form)
  • We ask that applicants pursue other funding sources like PTO scholarships, community education scholarship, athletic association scholarships. If you need help, we can support you in pursuing these funds
