Coeur d'Alene Tribe Donates $1.4 Million

Posted: Updated:

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) - The Coeur d'Alene Tribe has donated about $1.4 million in education money to 47 entities in northern Idaho and eastern Washington state.
    
The Coeur d'Alene Press reports (http://bit.ly/Y0hycr) the money donated Friday will be used to upgrade technology, purchase textbooks and offer students scholarships.
    
Coeur d'Alene Tribal Chairman Chief Allan says the tribe is proud to be able to help out teachers and schools that have faced challenges due to budget cuts.
    
The largest percentage of the money went to entities in Kootenai County. But donations were also made in Benewah, Shoshone, and Latah counties in Idaho, and Spokane County in Washington state.
    
The tribe returns 5 percent of its net gambling revenues to the financial support of education as part of its gambling compact with Idaho.
