What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit
of the child.

About the Foundation
The St. Louis Sharks Technology Foundation exists solely for the purpose of raising
money for the purchase of technology and other educational items for the St. Louis
Public Schools. Purchased technology will be used directly by teachers and students
and will help the teachers provide the highest quality education. Students will
be provided with hands-on experience with modern technology that many will be required
to use post graduation.
Our students need the benefit of additional technology to help them be successful
in today’s global economy.
The St. Louis Sharks Technology Foundation is a Michigan Non-Profit 501(c)3 Corporation.
It is comprised of five Board of Directors who are responsible for the general affairs
of the corporation. It is also the responsibility of the Board of Directors to receive
and process requests from the St. Louis (Michigan) Public Schools and to allocate
available funds to fulfill the requests.
The success of the foundation is heavily dependent on the efforts of its
volunteers and the generous support of its sponsors.
The foundation's fund raising structure is designed to give the community as a whole
the ability to financially support the quality of education provided to the students
of the St. Louis Public Schools. With limited financial resources, it is difficult
if not nearly impossible for the school to stay current with the advancements of
technology. As a result, classrooms and media centers are equipped with outdated
systems and software, leaving our students at a disadvantage post graduation. It
is hoped that through one annual event, the foundation can rally the community to
make a donation once a year for the purchase of needed equipment, software, and
other educational tools.
The foundation's "Big Event" is held annually during the
winter. By knowing ahead of time the approximate date of the event, committed donors
can plan to include their donation in their annual budget.
