Minnehaha Academy

Admission Office: 612-728-7722

Planned Giving

Minnehaha Academy is rich in legacy and history: 100 years ago, a devoted Swedish Covenant congregation was inspired Support Minnehahaby God to build a school offering high-quality education that would serve many generations of students. Even as the school has grown and evolved over the last century, it has remained faithful to the founders’ mission: helping students reach their greatest potential in academics, arts, and athletics while growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

It is hard to imagine how a monetary gift through your estate plan will be transformed and used to bless future generations. But that is exactly what a legacy gift can do. The legacy you leave behind isn’t simply about money; it can provide a bright and promising future for Minnehaha Academy and be a blessing to hundreds of Minnehaha students for generations to come.

SUCCESS is about the life we live. SIGNIFICANCE is about what lives on because of the life we live. Not all that God wants us to accomplish through our life will be achieved within our life’s span.

- Gary Walter, President Evangelical Covenant Church

Your legacy gift can be established through a bequest, a trust, or other financial vehicle that is appropriate to your situation.

Most planned gifts are designated to the Minnehaha Academy endowment for perpetual support of the school.

Please let us know if you have included Minnehaha Academy in your estate plans, and you will be included in the T.W. Anderson Society which recognizes the generosity of those making planned gifts.
