Donaldson Donates 200 Laptops to Support Educational Success for Underserved Students’ Remote Learning at Prodeo Academy

Leaders at Donaldson Company, Inc. and members of the company’s corporate tutor team delivered 200 laptops to Prodeo Academy, a network of tuition-free preparatory schools in the Twin Cities metro area that develop students in PreK-8th grades to be critical thinkers and reflective leaders.

When the pandemic necessitated the transition to online learning, Prodeo asked the public for donations to help secure computers, as it only had laptops for approximately half of its 700 students. Donaldson Company, with a long history of addressing the needs of its local communities and helping transform lives, leaned into the opportunity of providing technology to support underserved students and promote educational success.
