About Our Programs

Our Mission:
NIMSEF exists to provide all the children of our community an opportunity to participate in skiing/snowboarding. We believe this not only provides the child with a lifelong activity, but it gives the child a sense of belonging, accomplishment, and pride. All of which can help children do better in school, stay off drugs, have a good work ethic, etc.

Helping to Inspire a Lifelong, Positive Activity
North Idaho Mountain Sports Education Fund, Inc. (NIMSEF) was founded to give children like this more than just one day on the mountain. NIMSEF is a nonprofit organization recognized under IRS code 501c3. (EIN#: 27-3242820), and governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who receives zero compensation. Our expenses are minimal, allowing the majority of donations to directly benefit the children we sponsor.

The NIMSEF program not only teaches skiing/snowboarding, but engages the children, allowing them to work for a portion of their tuition and participate in fund raising. We believe this will help the children value their gift, build their work ethic and learn to give back to others.
