Founded in 1991, the Eagan Foundation is a community building non-profit that invests in the future of Eagan by providing community connections, grants, and scholarships. Each year the Eagan Foundation administers and awards scholarships to dozens of high school seniors who reside in or attend Eagan High School. In 2013, the foundation awarded $100,000 in scholarships to 118 local students. In addition, Eagan Foundation’s Community Grants and Initiatives Program provides funding and support to non-profit organizations serving Eagan; the foundation awarded $7,500 to local community organizations in 2013.
The programs of the Eagan Foundation are supported by donations from individuals, local businesses, and family foundations. In addition, the Eagan Foundation hosts an annual fundraising gala, and in November 2012 began a new community tradition by hosting a local variety show fundraiser. The Eagan Foundation continues to grow, and it serves an important role in the community by investing in the future of Eagan and meeting community needs.
