The Groves Academy Advancement Department offers a variety of events throughout the year to raise support for scholarships and the annual fund. If you'd like to support Groves Academy and connect with other like-minded individuals, we hope you will join us!

Give to the Max Day (Thursday, 11/17/2016): Minnesota's single largest day of online philanthropy. We are participating in the 8th annual Give to the Max Day event hosted by Donors who make gifts to Groves Academy on this day will be eligible for prizes awarded hourly by Groves Academy. Also, Groves Academy is eligible to receive cash prizes from from gifts made as well. Check back for more details.

3rd Annual Read-a-Thon (1/9/2017 - 1/20/2017): A core component of our curriculum is the Wilson Reading System®, an Orton-Gillingham based program that teaches the structure of words directly and systematically so that students master the coding system for reading and spelling. Since we highly value reading, we host a Read-a-Thon to raise support for our school and encourage reading skills. This is a student-led fundraiser where students solicit donations for their reading time. 

40th Annual Scholarship Gala (Saturday, 4/8/2017): The goal of the 40th Annual Scholarship Gala is to raise significant funding for scholarships - to support families who need to attend Groves Academy but cannot afford to pay the full cost of tuition. The gala is Groves Academy’s premiere fundraising event of the year and is hosted at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center. Approximately 500 Groves friends and families will join together in celebration of our school and students at this event. The evening includes experiences such as punchboards, a wine stop & shop, and a silent auction. Dinner and dessert are served. The evening will conclude with an exciting live auction, a scholarship challenge and live entertainment and dancing.
