The mission of the Burroughs School Fund is to preserve quality programs for current Burroughs Community School students and provide a reserve fund for future Burroughs Community School needs.
A group of concerned parents conceived the Burroughs School Fund in 2002 as a way to preserve valued Burroughs programs that were about to be eliminated when the Minneapolis Public Schools faced a revenue shortfall. The Fund was established with Achieve! Minneapolis, a non-profit organization that raises funds and community support for the Minneapolis Public Schools.
The Burroughs School Fund Advisory Board is responsible for the Burroughs School Fund. The Advisory Board consists of volunteers whose sole responsibility is to lead an annual fundraising campaign that solicits contributions from Burroughs families, Burroughs alumni, friends, neighbors, and the Minneapolis community. The Advisory Board reports to the Burroughs Site Council.
