Endowment Foundation

Continuing a legacy of excellence

The St. Anthony-New Brighton Endowment Foundation (Foundation) is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization whose purpose is to provide a permanent funding source for the St. Anthony-New Brighton School District (ISD 282).

The Foundation is made up of St. Anthony Village High School (SAVHS) graduates and members of the community committed to our schools. We believe that maintaining the successful model of rigorous academics in a caring educational environment will ensure the quality of our schools.

ISD 282 has a rich history of helping students create life stories that have an impact on our communities, our nation, and our world. With schools that regularly receive national recognition for excellence, the families of ISD 282 have access to some of Minnesota’s finest education.

This excellence comes with a price tag, and current levels of public funding no longer foot the bill for the caliber of education that’s needed for challenges the next generation will face.
