We Are A Community Committed To Its Children

241 Challenge

Brookside Administrative  Offices, Community Ed  and Alternative Learning  Center

The board of the Education Foundation continues its 241 Challenge to the community, alumni, and others committed to supporting the work of the foundation. The challenge is this: We’re looking for 241 donors committed to giving $241.00 for 2 years, 4 years, or 1 year.

This money will be used to supplement the endowed Student Assistance Fund, which is designed to assist students who have financial needs. Currently, the district has almost 50% of its students qualifying for Free or Reduced Lunch which is the main criterion for applying for assistance funds. It varies from building to building with the lowest at Sibley (40.4%) to the highest at Halverson (73.2%)

As of November 30, 2021 we have received donations for a total of $12,758.10. Please consider helping us raise that total before the end of the current school year. Tax-deductible contributions may be submitted online (Button at the top of this page) or should be sent to:

Education Foundation of Albert Lea,
P. O. Box 828
Albert Lea, MN 56007

Please indicate on your check your desire to provide $241.00 for 2 years, 4 years, or 1 year, and that your donation is in response to the 241 Challenge.
