We can most definitely beat last week's giving of $1 million. This doesn't mean it's all done by one person, it means that we all come together to give to our favorite non-profit in order to help them grow and thrive in the Treasure Valley.

Idaho Gives is Thursday, May 4th, 2017. On this day, you give. It's the state's largest day of giving.

What happens is that nonprofits from around the state sign up to receive donations from you. Idaho Gives is in its fifth year and is looking to make the biggest impact. The goal is to raise $1 for every adult in the state of Idaho. We have 1.2 million adults. Think we can do this? I do.

Don't want to forget to donate? At IdahoGives.org, you can schedule your donation to come out on Thursday during Idaho Gives which will be counted toward the total goal.

Once you donate, brag about it. Brag like crazy. Post online and add #IdahoGives so more people will know about it and could possibly support your cause.

Nonprofits involved include:

  • Idaho Humane Society
  • Wildland Firefighter Association
  • The Idaho Foodbank
  • Boise Public Schools Foundation
  • Dragon Flybrary
  • Computers for Kids, Inc
  • Idaho Internet Crimes Against Children Coalition
  • Idaho Shakespeare Festival
  • Idaho Miss Amazing, Inc.
  • Aquarium of Boise
  • Friends of Zoo Boise
  • Boise Art Museum
  • Discovery Center of Idaho
  • Foundation for Idaho History
  • Opera Idaho
  • Idaho Diaper Bank, Inc.
  • Idaho Meth Project
  • Childrens Home Society of Idaho

and more.

There are about 700 nonprofts listed on IdahoGives.org where you can donate to the cause that fits your life. The cause that speaks to you the most.

Take a peek around and get ready for Thursday!
