Partner with us!

Oftentimes we are asked, “What can I do to help?” Parents United is looking for partners to help us do something extraordinary together that none of us can do alone!

Parents United is an organization that unapologetically advocates for Minnesota’s public schools. We help parents and community members from across the state understand the link between the legislative process and local schools. Once a year, we reach out to a growing number of friends and ask them to join our efforts. Fully one-quarter of our funding comes directly from individual donors.

From the beginning it has been the mission of Parents United to encourage a large and powerful coalition of informed parents and citizens to speak out for excellent public schools. In four short years, we have developed parent contacts in 130 out of 134 Minnesota legislative districts. This is a critical achievement: we need elected officials to be held accountable by their own constituents if we are to attain our goal of strong, effective and well-funded public schools.

To engage parents in the conversation about the effect of policy on their local schools they need credible information. We strive to provide that information. The majority of our budget is dedicated to analyzing policy and proposed legislation, then communicating this to parents, both electronically and in person, from one end of the state to the other.

Please consider partnering with us. The last four years have shown us that we can make a difference. With your help, we will continue to make a difference for our schools, our children and our future.

Thank you for your ongoing support of public school children!
