‘Being creative about funding’

The budget set this morning for the Idaho Historical Society shows an 11.7 percent cut in state general funds, but just a 0.1 percent cut in overall funding. The reason: "They've started doing their own fundraising, and they're really doing a good job," said Rep. Wendy Jaquet, D-Ketchum. The society has increased its membership by 25 percent and obtained foundation grants, she said. "They are being pretty creative about their funding." JFAC voted unanimously in favor of the budget.
