In its third year, a record of 580 groups are participating in Idaho Gives. The annual event – which is modeled after a similar one in Minnesota – is sponsored by the Idaho Nonprofit Center, and has grown in scope every year.

More than 500 non-profit groups are taking part in the first ever “Idaho Gives” day today.  You can help out birds, dogs, rats, kids, museums, fine arts, the environment and more, during the 24 hour event. 

The goal is simple.  Get everyone to donate online to their favorite Idaho non-profit by midnight tonight.  Lynn Hoffmann is the Executive Director of the Idaho Nonprofit Center.  She calls today’s event a “giving frenzy.”
