A big THANK YOU to all who donated!

It’s early Wednesday morning and this year’s Thank a Teacher donation window has closed. We have another big delivery day scheduled this Friday with the final donations for the amazing staff members at Wayzata Public Schools.

We’d like to say a big THANK YOU to all who donated. Your generosity has helped us fund future grants and spread smiles all across the district!

Keep an eye out for another opportunity to honor staff members in the spring!

September update from the Wayzata Education Fund

As we start this unprecedented school year we are working to find the best way to support the district. Over the past two board meetings we decided on several actions.


First, we are postponing our annual Drive 4 Excellence Golf Tournament. It was a difficult decision, but feel that the event would have to have significant changes that would reduce the size and scope dramatically.  We have rescheduled the event for 9/20/2021 at the Medina Country Club. More to follow as we get closer. Save the date!


Second, we are currently not accepting grant applications. If you have a grant idea that simply cannot wait, please reach out to us via our Contact Us page.


Look for us later this year as we re-open the Thank a Teacher program in November!


We would also like to acknowledge the staff of the district, the school board, and Superintendent Anderson for their hard work so far and the work yet to come. This is a situation that is difficult to manage with new information flowing all the time. This year more than ever we need to support each other and do what we can to act as one team to support the staff and our kids.
