Idaho Nonprofit Center Celebrates 20 Years in the Treasure Valley!

Last updated November 15, 2021 by Totally Boise

COVID-19 left hundreds of Idaho nonprofits in distress –– events were canceled and postponed, leaving a critical cash gap for many organizations. The Idaho Nonprofit Center has continued to provide information to the public in order to help boost nonprofits who are in need. The Idaho Nonprofit Center continues to be a resource for nonprofits to turn to. 

Celebrating 20 years in Idaho, the Idaho Nonprofit Center's goal is to represent, highlight, and work alongside charitable organizations statewide to make Idaho a better home. With over 7,000+ registered organizations, what better way to celebrate the Idaho Nonprofit Center than 20 ways you can give back to an organization. 

Here are 20 ways you can join the Idaho Nonprofit Center in supporting Idaho Nonprofits. 

  1. Make a donation to a local nonprofit on Giving Tuesday: If you aren't familiar with Giving Tuesday, the movement is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving that encourages all acts of generosity and giving.
  2. Volunteer
