• When was the foundation started?

    The Maple River Academics, Arts, and Athletics Foundation was organized in 2000 and is a Designated Fund of the Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation.


    Why do we need a foundation?

    The increase in student participation in the curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities will continue to put financial strain on the district budget. It is encouraging to see more students take advantage of these opportunities, and it is important to stay competitive on the state and local levels, while keeping in mind that student participation and development is the number one goal.


    What has the Maple River AAA Foundation financially supported over the past years?

    The foundation has awarded a long list of items over the years. Annually, the board issues new awards following an extensive review of the applications. A complete list is published in our annual newsletter. The application as well as the list of awards can be found on our website.
