Idaho Gives, which has become known as Idaho’s biggest day of giving, has been extended from one day to two full weeks due to the stay at home order in Boise, Idaho.
The annual day of charity will now take place from Thursday, April 23 to Thursday, May 7.
According to the Idaho Non-Profit Center, non-profits in Idaho will have an increased financial burden due to the coronavirus pandemic. It is extremely important, now more than ever, to help these non-profits by donating in any way you can.
What can you give Idaho?
How Own Boise is making an impact
Over the course of the next two weeks, we will be sharing a series on all of our social platforms called Giving Boise, which will highlight various, local non-profits in Boise, ID and the surrounding area. We will be interviewing a few non-profits, such as the Boise Rescue Mission, Advocates Against Family Violence, and CATCH Inc. Finally, we will offer ways to donate and support these amazing businesses.
At Own Boise, our mission is to own where you live. We aren’t just about owning real estate in Boise, although we love that people do! We believe that in order to own where you live, you must be involved in the community. That involvement can come in many different ways. Donating time, money, volunteering, teaching, coaching, leading or simply just showing up.
In the past year, we have supported local non-profits through various fundraising efforts. One of our favorite fundraisers was our food and coat drive at our Client Appreciation Pie Event. Our clients were amazing and donated over 400 lbs of items for the Boise Rescue Mission.
