The Elk Rapids Area Education Endowment was established in 1994 by a donor with a heart for education in Elk Rapids and a wish to enrich educational opportunities in the schools and in the community. Since then, more than 100 additional gifts - large and small - have been given from many donors.
Grant awards support educational opportunities for Elk Rapids area residents, both within the public schools and in the community at large. These may include educational programs, scholarships, technology and arts equipment for classrom activites, and support for innovation by teachers.
