Since 2013, Idaho Gives — the statewide, 24-hour online annual giving event that takes place this year on Thursday, May 4 — has raised $3.5 million for Idaho nonprofits.
With more than 700 organizations participating now, organizers have raised the stakes in year number five: They’re trying to raise $1.2 million on Thursday. That represents $1 for every adult Idahoan.
The Idaho Nonprofit Center, following the example of similar programs in other states, began the project in Idaho as a new way for nonprofits to reach donors, especially younger, first-time donors. The online platform also offers a one-stop shop where donors can give to many groups they like, all in one place, not to mention a live website where donors and participants can chart their progress throughout the day.
For many of the groups — large and small — Idaho Gives is vital to both their fundraising and getting the word out to Idahoans about why their work matters.
Join us this year to support Kootenai Environmental Alliance during this day of giving. Your donation will help support our mission “to conserve, protect and restore our local environment with a particular emphasis on the Coeur d’Alene basin.” Every little bit helps. And if you donate today KEA could be eligilble for additional prizes from Idaho Gives.
