In 2004, 60 community members, identified for their loyalty, passion and support of the school district community, met to discuss the need for the Foundation. The idea was wholeheartedly supported. Volunteers from the community were appointed to a board of directors.

The Panther Foundation is a non-profit organization which partners and supports Spring Lake Park Schools, serving Blaine, Spring Lake Park and Fridley Minnesota.

With the combined commitments of the school district, the Panther Foundation and the members of the community, we can ensure our students receive the best educational opportunities.

In our first four years, over 100 grants were presented on behalf of students. In addition, another $30,000 was raised and used for "Fund-a-Dream" projects in the district. Our original sources of funding were from annual membership dues, February's Grand Gala, and the fall event called Staff Folleeez. Since then we've started two more events - the annual Carnival & 2K and the Golf Fundraiser benefiting Spring Lake Park Athletics and Activities.
