Welcome to the St. Maries Foundation for Education Web site. Glad to have you! The Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for the St. Maries School District in beautiful St. Maries, Idaho.

Founded in 2001 by a group of volunteers, the group formed with the purpose of supplementing local schools with additional funding. In less than a decade the organization has raised more than $20,000 and has already granted a bulk of that amount to the district.

As is often the case with organizations such as these, much of the hard work is usually done by a small group of dedicated individuals and the giving nature of a very generous community. Founding members Jack Botts, Gardner Cromwell, Dan Hammes, Everett Anderson, Karen Robinson, Debbie Martin Buchanan, George Currier, Eddie Epler, Randy Mueller, Francie Walters and Nancy Nelson Shepherd deserve major kudos for their efforts, as do the countless other communities members who have given both their time and money to this great cause.

The recent re-formation of the board of directors and election of new officers couldn’t have come at a better time, considering the budget shortfalls and funding deficits our schools are facing. It gives us a chance to do some great work, and I am excited and honored to be a part of it.

Together with the rest of the Foundation members – Becky Harold, Nancy Shepherd, Paul Ebert, John Hughes, Sylvia Eberlin, Adie Darden, Kim Schwanz and Randy Sather – we hope to inspire the group with fundraising ideas and grant fulfillments.

2011 Foundation board members include Becky Harold (vice president), Sylvia Eberlin, Devon Barta (president), John Hughes, Paul Ebert and Adie Darden. Not pictured, Nancy Shepherd (secretary), Kim Schwanz and Randy Sather.
