Funding & Support

for central Minnesota schools & districts

Enhancing education & improving lives

Big things can come from just a small idea. But it often takes funding to help an idea become a reality. At Sourcewell, we think it’s a smart idea to fund projects that enhance education and improve lives in central Minnesota's Cass, Crow Wing, Morrison, Todd, and Wadena Counties.

Small Project Partnership Funding

Have a new idea for your school? We can help. Small Project Partnership funds support smaller projects in the five-county area that may not meet other funding requirements.

Districts can apply for funding for single or multiple projects. Awarded projects receiving up to 50% of funds from Sourcewell based on enrollment (according to Minnesota Department of Education data). Combined awards are not to exceed $2,500 for districts with enrollment 1,250 students or less, or $2/student for enrollments above 1,250.
