Learning Renaissance

Support Academics in St Cloud's Public Schools.

The 2018 LEAF Learning Renaissance event will focus on partnering with District 742 to support Academic Programming and English Language Learners in all of schools!   Help us provide staff with materials and supplies to improve reading skills and level the “learning playing-field” so all students can excel academically.

The Eighth Annual Learning Renaissance will be held from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 4, 2018 at the Cafe Renaissance in Waite Park.  The Learning Renaissance provides financial support for the LEAF Academic Fund.  We are thrilled to announce that we have received a $10,000 match for our Fund-a-Need auction, which will focus on partnering with District 742 to provide needed supplies and materials for the District’s EL Programs. 

Please join us for a great evening of socializing with others who support public education while dining on Regional Foods and Fine Wine from the Mediterranean.  Many attendees consistently tell us that this is their favorite fundraising event of the year because it is such a unique event!   We hope you can join us on November 4, 2018!   Tickets are just $75 per person.  To reserve a spot, just click on the button below.
