Emmett Public School Foundation

Emmett Public School Foundation, Inc. 

Education ~ Opportunity

The Emmett Public School Foundation was organized in 1994 as a nonprofit corporation whose purpose is to support the education of Gem County students. Private financial support is essential to ensure the highest standard of quality programming to enhance each student's educational experience. Your gifts and cash donations will make a difference in creating enrichment opportunities for both students and faculty.  

These funds are annually made available from a designated fund from Dean and Gay Welch to the Emmett Public School Foundation and housed with the Idaho Community Foundation. The Emmett Public School Foundation is truly appreciative of these funds to be able to support classroom enhancements and safety throughout the Emmett School District. We appreciate all donations in which we can support our local Emmett School District teachers, staff, students, and families. For any more information concerning the Emmett Public School Foundation and its work, please feel free to contact Cory Daniels at or Sue Beitia at
