UMA Give to the Max 2021 fund drive!  

Hooray!  We are excited to report that Upper Mississippi Academy has received a $1500 challenge match for GiveMn’s Early Giving period (November 1-17)!  Every dollar DONATED to Upper Mississippi Academy up to $1500 will have double the impact between now and Give to the Max Day on November 18!  Can you be part of this Early Giving challenge and double the impact with a donation?

Who is providing this challenge you may ask?  A parent stepped up in appreciation of all the great teachers at Upper Mississippi Academy who make learning engaging, inviting, and fun!  The match followed the parent’s student sharing at breakfast -- unsolicited! – how they really liked school this year with all the field trips, opportunities to get outside, and the great teachers!  The student went on to say how they also really love the art classes that “brighten the mood each day.” And they were happy to have made several new friends!  This is music to any parent’s ears! 

Wow, what better than a student testament to highlight the holistic learning environment Upper Mississippi is building and working to expand through this year’s Give to the Max fund drive!  Can you join us in reaching our $10,000 goal?   All donations will specifically provide seed money for additional and/or unbudgeted classroom and student projects, field trips, community building discussions, after school clubs, and the purchase of sustainable equipment to facilitate these activities.

Remember, every gift, no matter how large or small, makes a difference!  And your support today will have Double the Impact!  Current donation total is $1,590, help us get to $3,090 so we can receive the match donation!  Can we count on you for your support?


ALL size donations make a difference!  Year-round giving is also an option if you can chip in a little bit more. Click on the GiveMN link and schedule your gift or Upper Mississippi Academy’s website where you can give a one-time or monthly donation.


Or, give a one-time or monthly donation directly to Upper Mississippi Academy via their website and PayPal Giving Fund.

Trout in the Classroom
Minnehaha Falls was the outdoor classroom recently for 6th graders as they collected water samples, explored the shoreline and splashed through the chilly water.  The water samples will be tested for water quality and micro organisms that impact trout in the water. In January, the classroom will become a hatchery for troutlets that will be released in the spring.  

These experiences are what makes UMA unique and worth the investment and your support.
We ask you to support Upper Mississippi Academy today and spread the word by inviting family and friends to join this effort!  Thank you for all you do for Upper Mississippi Academy on behalf of our students!
