Groves Gala Celebration a Success!
We are thrilled to announce that together we raised $767,000 to empower every student to discover their brilliance.
We wish to share our deep gratitude to the Board of Trustees, Gala Committee, volunteers, and everyone who attended and donated.
Every dollar raised will:
- Allow us to provide a world-class education to our school’s unique learners.
- Increase access for children who may not be able to afford our services through scholarships for 30% of our students.
- Support our work to close the literacy achievement gap for the 8,000 students in the public and independent schools partnering with us in the Twin Cities metro area and beyond. Literacy matters!
Mark Your Calendars for next year!
