What We Do

AHEF donors are closing opportunity gaps for Anoka-Hennepin students every day by creating equitable and innovative experiences for students.

Donor impact is measured by the smiles on students' faces when they are given new and engaging opportunities to grow and learn. AHEF estimates that our donors directly and positively impacted 29,100 students, pre-K through Adult Basic Education, in 2020-21. By creating more equitable and innovative experiences and deeper, stronger opportunities for students, our donors are heroes. These programs are implemented by dedicated Anoka-Hennepin teachers and staff, and fueled by caring volunteers and generous donors like you. Thank you!
