LEAF Receives a generous gift of $10,000 from St. Cloud Golden Gloves

October 28, 2023

The District 742 Local Education & Activities Foundation announces that with a generous gift of $10,000 from the St. Cloud Golden Gloves organization, the fall 2023  Adopt-A-Classroom Project has already set a NEW RECORD of support of our district classrooms.  As of October 26, $48,750 has been donated to support the purchase of classroom supplies throughout or district!  It is the most successful adopt-a-classroom program in Minnesota!

It’s not too late to donate to support education in District 742 classrooms! 

LEAF’s goal is to connect businesses, individuals, and groups to specific classrooms to help provide needed supplies that the District is unable to fund.  Supporters can “adopt” a classroom (Early Education, Elementary, Junior High or Senior High) by making a tax-deductable $250 contribution for the needed classroom supplies.

Businesses, individuals, grand-parents or groups can choose to adopt a specific classroom at a specific school or make a $250 donation to LEAF and allow LEAF to choose a classroom randomly from those classrooms that apply for help.  LEAF will then inform the donor of the classroom they have adopted.  The business or individual donor will receive a Certificate of Adoption that identifies the classroom they have adopted.  100% of all proceeds will go directly to the participating classrooms!    

This is LEAF’s thirteenth year of the Adopt a Classroom project, which has been the conduit for $340,234 to 1,361 classrooms to help purchase needed classroom supplies!
