    Foundation 191 announced grants totaling $11,127.50 to help fund eighteen projects at Burnsville-Eagan-Savage schools at the June 13 School Board meeting.

    “Foundation 191 was formed in 2005 to meet a need for innovative opportunities for students. The mission of Foundation 191 is to enhance, enrich and expand educational opportunities within the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage school district. Since inception, we have used our status as a not for profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt corporation to raise funds and in-kind contributions that have been returned to the school district in programs and projects benefiting students and early childhood education, according to Foundation Board President Robbie Bunnell.  “We raise funds for these grants through an annual golf tournament and an annual dinner event as well as employee and individual contributions.”

    “Starting in 2007 we began a successful grant program that has awarded more than 100 grants totaling over $125,000 to projects created and developed by staff or students in the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage school district impacting Early Childhood Education, Community Education, all ten elementary schools, our three middle schools, Burnsville High School and the Alternative High School. Each project directly benefits students in the district and has carried a wide ranging impact for students, staff, their families and our community. We are proud to say we have touched thousands of students with these projects,” she said.
