Who We Are

Mission, Values & Strategic Priorities

What we do

The Anoka-Hennepin Educational Foundation's mission is to support and enrich educational opportunities for students in partnership with Anoka-Hennepin schools and the community.

Our donors enrich opportunities for our students by focusing on three strategic priorities:

  • Enhancing early childhood education
  • Expanding talent and opportunity development
  • Increasing career and college readiness

Our Values

Compassion   We keep students at the core of all we do.

Integrity   We are honest and forthcoming in every interaction and we do what's right.

Collaboration   We realize our best work involves others.

Resourcefulness   We are thrifty and responsible stewards of our resources and the resources of our donors.

Equity   We benefit all students in our district.

Impactful   We make a difference in student success.

Social Responsibility   We believe that better students make better communities, and that better communities make a better world.

Our Volunteer Leadership

Today, the foundation is governed by a 16 member board of directors consisting of community leaders, district staff, parents and student representatives from each of the district’s five traditional high schools. We beleive that because we serve students, students should be represented in our volunteer leadership. 

In the 28 years since its creation, the foundation has positively impacted the educational experiences of thousands of students in Anoka-Hennepin. The Foundation's generous donors are positively impacting the more than 38,000 students enrolled in our schools today.
