Frequently Asked Questions

Is my donation to the St. Louis Sharks Technology Foundation tax deductible?

Yes! The St. Louis Sharks Technology Foundation is recognized as a 501(c)3 Tax Exempt Nonprofit Organization. Donations made to the foundation are tax deductible.

How does the foundation determine what is needed by the school?

Teachers and other staff members must complete a form specifying what is being requested, how the items will be used, how much the items cost, and how many students will benefit from the purchase. The foundation's board of directors analyzes all received requests. Purchases are made (as funds are available) with priority being granted to requests that will most significantly benefit the students. In addition, consideration is given to if the school's current infrastructure can support the items or if additional funds would be needed in order to utilize the newly purchased items. Teachers and staff members whose project ideas are well thought out and show great promise of success will always be given top priority.
