Because we believe in the Excellence in Eden Prairie Schools and want to provide a Legacy of Giving...
To maintain the level of excellence in Eden Prairie Schools we must continue to invest in our students, staff and programs to positively impact student achievement. Supporting the Foundation for Eden Prairie Schools (FEPS) is a statement of faith in, and optimism toward, our valued education system.
Send an Appreciation Gift
Is there someone in our EP Schools you'd like to thank but you're not quite sure what to do? Why not send them an "Appreciation Gift". With a minimum tax deductible donation of $20 to FEPS, we will deliver a delicious Bundtlet from Nothing Bundt Cakes along with a personalized note from you on May 27th. For more details on how to send your favorite teacher, staff member, coach or bus driver a smile-inducing Appreciation Gift, click here.
