The dreams of seven communities become a reality in our schools.

The Seven Dreams Education Foundation (
SDEF) is dedicated to helping the learners of Robbinsdale Area Schools (RAS) succeed by funding innovative education initiatives that enhance individual skills and experiences. 

The Seven Dreams Education Foundation is an independent, non-profit 501 (c)(3) education foundation founded by community members, parents and education professionals of Robbinsdale Area Schools.  Since SDEF’s inception in 2003, the Foundation has funded 143 grants to support student success and maximize individual academic potential.  These grants have totaled more than $283,000 in hands-on learning initiatives. 

As a part of our Non-Profit status, we make our Form 990EZ
available on our website.

The “Seven” in our name represents the seven communities in the Robbinsdale Area School District:  Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Crystal, Golden Valley, New Hope, Plymouth and Robbinsdale.
