Idaho Gives Launches Thursday

Hundreds of Idaho nonprofits are making final preparations for the inaugural “Idaho Gives,” an unprecedented day of statewide, charitable giving taking place on Thursday. Groups have been busy reaching out to supporters new and old—via direct mail, email, web sites, and social media—to drive traffic and donations to this coming Thursday.  Donors will have over 500 causes to choose from when they participate in Idaho Gives. “It’s extremely gratifying to see so many nonprofits working together toward a common goal and being rather creative in drawing attention to their organizations,” said Lynn Hoffmann, Executive Director of the Idaho Nonprofit Center, which is presenting the event. “Following several months of planning, we’re thrilled to see the participating nonprofits really embracing the spirit of Idaho Gives and generating excitement in their communities.” Activities related to the giving day are scheduled for all over the state/News Release.
