The ISD 279 Foundation is raising money to give students an even more fulfilling education

Providing local students with additional learning and developmental opportunities is the mainstay of the ISD 279 Foundation.  “We’re a group of community members that serve on the foundation, and our goal is to raise money and support the students of District 279,” says board member Mary Ellen DeBois.

ISD 279 is the fifth-largest school district in the state and serves all or parts of Corcoran, Maple Grove, Osseo, Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Dayton, Plymouth and Rogers. It serves approximately 20,000 students, kindergarten through grade 12.
