Who We Are

Mission, Vision, Values & Strategic Priorities

What we do

The Anoka-Hennepin Educational Foundation's mission is to cutivate equitable and innovative experiences for students through partnerships with compassionate people who have generous hearts.

Our vision is of students who feel connected and are joyfully engaged in discovering who they are while making a positive impact in 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

Equity   All students have equal dignity and value. We aim to provide each student with what they need to be successful.

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.

Impactful   We provide students with opportunities to succeed in higher education, careers, and life.

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 18 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 believe that because we serve students, students should be represented in our volunteer leadership. 

In the 29 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.
