Minnetonka Foundation

Enriching and Accelerating Minnetonka Schools

Since 1986, we funded innovative technology, programs, materials and experiences in Minnetonka schools. The curricular programs and materials we support excite and motivate Minnetonka students and teachers, preparing them to thrive in our rapidly-changing world. We depend on your financial donations and truly appreciate the support you provide to a world-class school district.



The Foundation is proud to sponsor the 2017 Parenting with a Purpose Community Book Read

How to Raise an Adult
Wednesday, March 15 | 6:30 - 8:30 pm | MHS Arts Center

Julie Lythcott-Haims draws on research; conversations with experts; and her own insights as Stanford’s Dean of Freshmen to highlight how over-parenting harms children, their stressed-out parents, and society at large. While empathizing with the parental hopes and fears that lead to over-helping, Julie offers practical alternative strategies that underline the importance of allowing children to make their own mistakes and develop the resilience, resourcefulness, and inner determination necessary for success. Relevant to parents with kids of all ages.

The Foundation, a valued partner of the Minnetonka Public Schools, is governed by a nineteen-member Board of Trustees. Representatives from the Minnetonka Board of Education, District leadership staff and the Minnetonka Alumni Association also attend our board meetings. The Foundation is a registered, tax-exempt, non-political, non-profit organization independent of the Minnetonka Public Schools District.

We believe:

  • Minnetonka Public Schools are the heart of our community.
  • Outstanding public education benefits us all — economically, culturally, and intellectually.
  • Community involvement improves the quality of public education.
