Ann Kaari

 Loring School Ann Kaari Funds for Education Excellence– Ann Kaari (1942- 2017) dedicated her life to helping Minneapolis public schools, serving 12 years as a board director and decades more as a classroom volunteer. She helped create the Patrick Henry Association and was on the Holiday on 44thand Victory Neighborhood Association for years.  As a lifelong Northsider and fierce neighborhood advocate, Ann held a special place in her heart for Loring Elementary, the community school serving her beloved neighborhood and attended by both her sons and now grandson.

The Kaari family generously established the Ann Kaari Funds for Education Excellence in 2017 to support Loring student field trips, winter clothing, and special requests from classroom teachers. For the 2019-20 school year, Ann's friends and family have agreed to match up to $1,000 in donations received from the community through the end of the school year.  

All donations will go towards supporting student and family needs. Please help us support Ann's legacy by making a financial contribution to the school.  Your gift will have a direct benefit on our community's students and teachers, and will honor the inspiring servant leadership demonstrated by Ann for so many years.  Loring is accepting checks in her honor made out to Loring Elementary School throughout the year.  Please consider donating to your neighborhood school in her honor.
