Viking Foundation

The Viking Booster Club is pleased to announce the launch of the Coeur d’Alene Viking Foundation, a community based entity to support Coeur d’Alene High School students.

For over 30 years, the Viking Booster Club has been guided by a mission statement that stated it would “provide the best programs, facilities, and equipment possible to the students and athletes through private donations, fundraising, and Booster Club sponsored activities.”

The Coeur d’Alene Viking Foundation will enhance our booster organization by adding a focus on education, music and fine arts in addition to activities and athletics.

Fundraising is the main focus of a foundation. The Coeur d’Alene Viking Foundation will help the Viking Booster Club increase its current fundraising base to include federal educational grants, corporate educational grants and other support resources. Secured donations can be unrestricted (the foundation board decides how to use them) or restricted (the donor specifies the way he/she wants the funds to be used). In addition to fundraising, an endowment fund will be established to fund scholarships and teacher grants.

It should be clear that the Viking Booster Club will remain intact but will also do business as the Coeur d’Alene Viking Foundation. Activities and athletics will remain a prominent part of the Viking Booster Club as they have proven to be the best vehicle for generating awareness, excitement and donations for all of our students.

As you know, public school systems around the country are facing on-going shortfalls due to diminished federal, state and local funding. If we are to provide our children with an education that gives them the best opportunity for achievement, we must do all that is in our power to insure their future success. The Coeur d’Alene Viking Foundation is the organization that will provide the support for our students when the current system cannot.

Thank you for your support and joining our growing list of supporters who share our vision and mission.
