Donate to Prodeo Today

As a free, public school, Prodeo Academy receives roughly 75% of the funding a traditional district school receives. Financial support provides the fuel our students need to excel. We look forward to partnering with you in this mission!
 "I choose to give to Prodeo because Minnesota’s opportunity gap is unacceptable, and I know Prodeo has the passion, commitment, and vision to close this gap. No one who lives in our community should be content with the state of our education system when it is failing to serve children of color. I believe in the persistence of Prodeo’s scholars, their families, and Prodeo’s leadership, teachers, staff, and supporters to work tirelessly until all children in our community have equal access and opportunity to the future they deserve."
