Nonprofits Pull in More than Half a Million Dollars during Idaho Gives

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Nonprofits and charities across the state raised more than $500,000 during the inaugural 24-hour online fundraising blitz dubbed ‘Idaho Gives.’ Organizers estimate nearly 6,200 people made donations Thursday to help the cause of hundreds of nonprofits taking part in the fundraiser.

The Idaho Humane Society raked in $13,123, taking the top spot among large nonprofits. The Idaho Foodbank and Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest also received more than $13,000. The event sponsored by the Idaho Nonprofit Center is modeled after giving days in several states including Minnesota, which has raised more than $70 million since 2009 for charity.

Companies including St. Luke’s and Idaho Central Credit Union have committed to matching a portion of the funds raised. So far, corporations have agreed to chip in $40,000.
