A non-profit foundation has been established to help fund expenses for the building of the Shiner public school.

Marvin Boedeker is the president of the Shiner ISD Educational Foundation.

"February 16, 2006, was an extremely special day, and possibly the greatest day in the history of Shiner, Texas," he stated. "The ground breaking on this day marked the official start of the grandest construction project our small town has ever undertaken. The monumental task of planning, developing, and building a new school has been under debate for almost two years, encountering tremendous bouts of discussion. Consideration, both pro and con, devoted to this issue easily surpasses that given any other project.

"What truly defines the construction of our new school as one of the single greatest events in Shiner's history is that it stands to benefit not only all of our children, grandchildren, and faculty, but also the future of our wonderful community.

"In an effort to support the successful completion of the new school, we have created the Shiner ISD Educational Foundation," he stated.

The foundation has been established as a Texas Nonprofit Corporation under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

The purpose of this foundation is to provide financial assistance to Shiner ISD in the construction of our new school. "We would like to provide all of you with information on how you can personally contribute to the success of this great project," he added.

The initial fundraisers have been developed by the foundation, which provide everyone with an opportunity to participate:
I. PERSONALIZED PAVERS (NOTE: All Letters are 5/8 inch at B & C are GRANITE BLOCKS)

  C. 2 3/8" X 12" X 16": up to 8 lines; 28 letters and spaces per line = $500

"Through the five types of sponsorships outlined above, we believe we have paved an avenue for everyone to take part in this wonderful project.

"The Foundation views these fundraisers as a long-term financial aid solution, but with all of your help, we can get them off to a strong start. This is your opportunity to demonstrate your support of this once in a lifetime project. Thank you in advance for your gift to the current and future Shiner ISD students, faculty, School Board, Administration, and people of our great community," Boedeker concluded.
