Idaho Gives 2018!
It’s almost May 3rd, 2018 and that means it’s almost time for Idaho Gives! Idaho Gives is an amazing project dedicated to giving to Idaho based nonprofits. It was started in 2013 by the Idaho Nonprofit Center and has been growing each year, the goal for 2018 is to raise $1.5 million and we’re confident that the goal will be met!
In 2017 over $1.3 million was raised, up from nearly $1.1 million in 2016. The nonprofit sector in Idaho is growing rapidly so it’s amazing to see events like this one doing so much to help them succeed! HD Insurance has been an award pool sponsor since 2015 and this year we will also be volunteering at the live event taking place on the Basque Block!
All throughout Idaho tomorrow there will be various events focused on raising money for the many nonprofits that call our state home. From 9 am to 7 pm at the Basque Block in Boise there will be donation stations, rotating nonprofits, activities and music! From 10 am to 7 pm Walla Walla Clothing Co. will be hosting the Women’s & Children’s Alliance who will receive 10% of the day’s sales through Shop for a Cause!
There are also events at the Boise Art Museum, Zee’s Rooftop, The North Face, Branched Roots, Buy Idaho, Keystone Station and Shift Boutique for First Thursday that are all benefiting nonprofits in one way or another! The Boise River Enhancement Organization will be having an event hosted by Idaho River Sports for their first Idaho Gives drive and if anyone knows how to throw a party, it’s Idaho River Sports!
Nonprofits are the unsung heroes of the communities they call home and seek to help. Without them many of the people they serve would be left without things like access to food, clothing and other resources that many of us take for granted. If you’ve ever wanted to help someone but have not known how or had time, Idaho Gives is a great entry to giving! You can donate online or go to any of the events happening tomorrow to learn more about the various organizations we have and even learn about how you can help make a difference in someone’s life.
We will be posting pictures of our time at Idaho Gives on Instagram and Facebook so be sure to like and follow us!
