In addition to cash donations, Great Minds Learning Center is always in need of additional educational tools and office supplies. From donations to our scholarship program to purchasing books and teaching tools, our students appreciate the support! 

Here are some ideas of things we could use:

  • Support for our scholarship fund  - We offer scholarships to students who qualify for free/reduced lunch.  These scholarships make one-on-one assistance available to students who may otherwise not be able to receive it.  We typically award $1,000/month in scholarships, so every dollar donated helps!
  • Screening scholarships - Provide a free initial intake screening for a low-income student.  This scholarship allows families to better understand their child's learning difficulties and develop a plan for addressing them.
  • Operational support - Consider monthly (or annual) operational support through contributions to our rent, internet, or phone bill.  Your support helps us keep up with rising costs while keeping fees affordable for students. 
  • Teacher Training -  Help us help our tutors by paying for additional training.
  • Technology - We regulary use iPads with our students and could use several more for our growing student base.  Our Hibbing office is in need of a new computer. 
  • Teaching Tools - We appreciate donations toward the purchase of books, technology and other teaching materials. 
  • Office Supplies - Toner for our copy machine, printer ink, paper, sticky notes, etc. is always appreciated! 
  • Volunteers -  We love volunteers!  Volunteers may tutor, serve on our board of directors, or help us fundraise. 

Please contact us with any questions about specific needs you would like to help with.
