Imagine a community where every child’s heart flutters in awe and wonder – a place where educators are empowered to feed their students’ curiosity, imagination, and hunger to learn in new and creative ways. That’s our vision for the Sun Prairie School District, and we need your help.



Through educational grants, we inspire area teachers to introduce young learners to enriching hands-on experiences and programs that help them create, discover, and thrive. Over 99% of contributions to our all-volunteer organization go directly toward funding speakers, workshops, and other extraordinary learning opportunities




With over $430,000 grant dollars already awarded, we’ve touched thousands of children’s lives in every school in the Sun Prairie Area School District. With support from generous donors like you, we can reveal a whole new world of knowledge to even more students right here in your backyard.
