WHEN: Thursday, May 2nd, 12 am to 11:59 pm
WHERE: Online at www.idahogives.org
Tomorrow the website idahogives.org will open it’s doors for a special 24 hour donation time frame. Hundreds of local non-profits have registered and will be accepting donations. Many of the organizations do not have an online donation system, so this day will see many organizations getting donations from first-time donators.
Boise Weekly states: “Simply put, the give-a-thon will ask donors to financially support those charitable organizations that they see as integral to Idaho.” Donators can separate the non-profits by category; some categories include Arts and Society, Children and Youth, Community and Society to name just 3.
Look also for a real world presence of Idaho Gives: “…in the Treasure Valley, the city of Boise’s Sesqui-Shop will play host to a revolving door of charitable organizations throughout the day. More nonprofits will be on display at the Boise Grove, and a daylong block party, featuring music and food trucks, is scheduled for Boise’s Fourth and Front streets”
The campaign focus is on getting Idahoans to support their community through donations. “Similar give-a-thons saw more than 60 percent of donors making first-time contributions.”
What a great opportunity to see what kinds of non-profits operate in Idaho! Remember, the online donation through idahogives.org is only open for 24 hours, 12 am on Thursday, May 2nd to 11:59pm.
