So, let’s dig deep for our favorite Edina charities. Follow the link at the end of each description to be taken directly to GiveMn’s donation page, specific to each organization.
Companion Rabbit Network
Celebrating its 13th year in Edina, the Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society (MCRS) has helped more than 1,200 bunnies get adopted. You may have seen MCRS volunteers at various PETCO stores around the area, handing out informational brochures and offering adoptable rabbits.
They’d like you to know that all of their programs are dependent on donations. So, Give to the Max!
Erik’s Ranch in Edina supports young adults with autism. Did you know that, according to CDC estimates, one in 50 Minnesota children are diagnosed with autism?
Erik’s Ranch & Retreats provides independent living skills to these young adults, helps them find meaningful work and provides an opportunity for social and recreational interaction.
They’d like you to know that “We need your help to support this first-of-its-kind model that provides safe and independent living and meaningful jobs to this underserved segment of our population.” Give to the Max, Edinans!
Did you know that the annual incidence of brain injury is five times that of breast cancer, multiple sclerosis and HIV/AIDS combined? More than 100,000 Minnesotans currently live with disabilities caused by brain injury and Restart is the organization many turn to.
The staff teaches independent living skills so that they are better able to manage their own affairs, “successfully participate in day-to-day life and make decisions that lead to self-sufficiency,” according to Restart.
Edina Education Fund
Support our amazing schools by giving to the Edina Education fund this Give to the Max Day.
A non-profit organization, the Edina Education Fund uses its funding to support innovative projects in Edina Public Schools. These funds augment those provided by property taxes, state aid and parent fundraising efforts.
Some of the funds go to the areas of technology, engineering, science, languages and counseling. Keeping Edina schools strong secures our property values, so donate today!
