Every Friday The Foundry Home Goods contributes 5% of our total sales to a different community-nominated small-and-mighty cause. This Friday's Foundry Giving Friday recipient? ACES.
ACES (Athletes Committed to Educating Students) is a Minnesota-based non-profit working to working to reduce Minnesota’s academic opportunity gap by providing exceptional math and social-emotional education through the lens of sports.
More than 6,000 4th-8th graders have participated in ACES programming at schools and community centers across Minnesota – strengthening their academics and developing crucial skills like teamwork, perseverance, and goal setting.
ACES is proud to be the first and only organization of its kind to have the direct support of every major Minnesota professional sports team. In partnership with the Minnesota Aurora FC, Lynx, Timberwolves, Twins, United FC, Vikings, and Wild, as well as the University of Minnesota Athletic Department, ACES brings learning to life with their hands-on curriculum, individual mentorship, and once-in-a-lifetime field trip opportunities.
We are pleased and proud to support this good work this Foundry Giving Friday. If you don't need anything from us, consider contributing to ACES directly. If you DO find yourself in need of anything from us, know that your purchase goes to support good change happening on the community level.
Thanks to Sierra for the nomination!
