Education Donations Request

The Coeur d’Alene Tribe recognizes that education holds the key to our future success as a state, a region and a nation. We have always believed in the power of education; it is a part of our culture and one of our top priorities. In fact, we value education so much that our leadership insisted on returning 5% of our net gaming revenues to the financial support of education as part of our 1992 gaming compact with the State of Idaho. We committed to this voluntarily and we are proud to stand by that commitment twenty years later. Over the past two decades, the Coeur d’Alene Tribe has donated more than $22.5 million and counting to education around the region.

Starting this year, all schools and nonprofit organizations interested in requesting education funds from the Coeur d’Alene Tribe will be required to fill out a short application detailing the funding request. Applications must be submitted by September 30 in order to be considered for funding in the subsequent year. In other words, any funding requests for 2016 must be submitted by September 30, 2015. The Tribe plans to notify recipients in late January-February 2016 and checks will be delivered shortly after.

Please return applications by mail to:
850 A Street
PO Box 408
Plummer, ID 83851

Applications may also be faxed to 208-686-8813
