Mineral Point Excellence in Education Fund


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.
