Longtime Main Avenue staple, St. Maries Realty, is the thirteenth business to sign on to the St. Maries Foundation for Education’s SD41 fund matching drive. St. Maries Realty has been in business in St. Maries for more than two decades, offering superior real estate service to our community and its outlying areas.
The Foundation’s fund-matching campaign is a fundraising drive that lasts the length of the 2011-2012 school year where local business will match contributions made by teachers, faculty and staff of School District 41. The total amount donated through payroll deductions from generous school district employees will be doubled by an equally generous donation by our local businesses.
The 12 other companies committed to this fundraiser are BRICKWALL Spa & Espresso, North Idaho Vinyl Graphic Designs, The Grub Box, Interstate Drilling and Pump, Timber Realty, Valley Vista Care, Benewah Community Hospital, The Gazette Record, AmericanWest Bank, Hughes Ace Hardware, Premiere Financial Services and The Paperhouse.
The non-profit organization was originally formed in 2001 by a group of volunteers with the purpose of supplementing local schools with additional funding. In less than a decade the organization has raised more than $20,000.
The Foundation currently has $17,000 available to grant to School District 41. Money is awarded to local schools through grant requests made by teachers.
Any businesses – or individuals – interested in contributing to the St. Maries Foundation for Education through this fundraiser or in any other way may contact Foundation President Devon Barta at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail checks payable to the group to P.O. Box 176 St. Maries, ID 83861. All donations are tax-deductible.
