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 Region 5.

Small Project Partnership Funding

Have a new idea for your school? We can help. Small Project Partnership funds support smaller projects in Minnesota's Cass, Crow Wing, Morrison, Todd, and Wadena Counties 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.
