Get To Know Us

Mission: The mission of the Mineral Point Community Foundation is to invest resources in Mineral Point and in its schools to meet changing charitable, educational, civic, historical, and cultural needs. For good. For ever.

The Mineral Point Excellence in Education (EIE) Endowment is an endowment fund established in 2016 that provides private resources for the support of the Mineral Point School District.

Grants from the Mineral Point EIE to the Mineral Point School District will support educational programming outside of the boundaries of the school district budget.

The Mineral Point EIE Endowment is led by an advisory board of local community volunteers who operate independently of the school district, and also advises the Mineral Point Community Endowment. The advisory board leads fundraising efforts and will determine the annual grant and scholarship awards.

Learn About Our EIE Grants

Gifts to Excellence in Education funds are an investment in quality education for today’s students and future generations. Private resources allow for educational programming not typically funded by tax dollars.

Your gift can be a lasting and meaningful way of recognizing a special person or event in the life of your family, organization or business, or as a statement that you value education today and into the future. Donations to any EIE Fund are welcome at any time of the year. All gifts are tax deductible.
