Why We Give – Support Idaho Gives TODAY!

Why do you give? Maybe it’s because you believe in a particular cause, because of an experience you’ve had, or because of how gratifying it is. Or maybe you give because you want to be a part of making history (read below to find out how).

In all actuality, there doesn’t need to be a reason for giving. However, if you do need a reason, Idaho Gives is a great one.

Idaho Gives is a statewide, 24-hour day of giving – and today is that day! This is a day where Idahoans come together to support nonprofits of their choice throughout our great state. Here’s the catch – you don’t even have to leave the office, the house, or the couch to participate! All donations are processed entirely online.

Idaho Gives was launched by the Idaho Nonprofit Center in 2013. During the first year, 6,192 individuals donated $578,735 to 541 causes. In 2014, $780,000 was raised from over 7,500 donors. The trend has been set to make 2015 the first $1 million year. Together, we can make history.

You can give right now and then track the progress throughout the day by clicking here.

Tell your friends. Tell your family. Tell your dog (yes, animal related nonprofits are involved too). When we’re all in, Idaho wins.
