What job could be more important than teaching…and full of challenges?
This fall you can help our local teachers meet those challenges and be a part of changing the lives of Cannon Falls kids through Give to the Max.

Give to the Max Day graphic Giving lifts us upWhat is Give to the Max?
On Thursday, November 17 the Cannon Falls Education Foundation is participating in Minnesota’s annual Giving Holiday, Give to the Max Day. The money CFEF raises will be used to help teachers enhance the learning experience of our local kids. Every year the Education Foundation gives thousands of dollars in grants to our local schools through funding requests made by teachers and staff for a variety of needs that are not covered by general education dollars. This year so far, we have approved grants for an author visit, a yearbook camera, and several teaching aids for math classes, including graphing calculators which will “bring equity to the classroom and provide all students with access to the same powerful learning tools,” as the requesting teacher so aptly put his request.

How You Can Help
We can’t provide these grants without your help. What we need from you is to help us reach our $13,000 Give to the Max Day goal by making a donation in any amount by November 17. You can do this online, in-person or through the mail.
