A Brief History

The Edina Foundation was incorporated in 1977 under the joint auspices of the Edina City Council and the Edina Board of Education. By the Foundation's 25th anniversary in 2002, the Board of Education had established its own charitable organization, the Edina Education Fund, and agreed with the Edina City Council to release their rights to make appointments to the Foundation Board. Following that joint action, the Foundation changed its name to the Edina Community Foundation, and its Board of Directors has been expanded to be broadly representative of the Edina community.
