Donations to ERHS

ERHS community is invited to participate by supporting our two building causes. Any size gift will make a difference and is greatly appreciated!


Keating DuGarm was a unique educator that always kept his students in the center of his work. We was a special educator at East Ridge High School, a team teacher, and Link Crew Coordinator. He was a Minnesota Twins super fan, loved music and enjoyed comic books. In honor of his passing in September 2009, The Keating DuGarm Fund was created. The purpose of this fund is to provide school supplies, breakfast/lunches and other personal items to students that present a need. Please consider keeping Mr. DuGarm's legacy alive and directly supporting the students in our building.


The Raptors Closet supplies teachers with general, and sometimes specific, teaching supplies that are used for/with students in the classroom. The average teacher spends $500 on supplies each year. This parent initiative is to help classroom teachers to keep their out of pocket costs down for general supplies to use with students. Students and families are now able to make a financial donation to the RAPTORS CLOSET. All donations are tax deductible.

Ways to Donate:

  1. In SmartSchoolK12, search for "ERHS Raptors Closet Donation". (This is not an option for the Dugarm Fund.)
  2. Students, families, staff, and community members can drop off a check to the ERHS main office (made out to ERHS. Please specific which cause you are contributing to.)
