Idaho Gives: Donations top $1 million, set new record

Printer-friendly version

Nonprofit organizations from across the Valley came up with a slew of clever ways to inspire donors to open their pocket books on Thursday, the third annual Idaho Gives.

Donors were able to support their favorite nonprofits on the Idaho Gives donation website during a single 24-hour period. When that window closed at 11:59 p.m. Thursday, the event had raised a combined $1,079,656 — easily surpassing the $750,000 raised in 2014.

Janice Fulkerson, executive director of the Idaho Nonprofit Center, the event organizer, said she watched the Idaho Gives website go live at midnight. Pre-scheduled and live donations started popping up on the home page immediately. She got just a few hours of sleep before starting her day. It included Idaho Gives proclamations by Meridian Mayor Tammy de Weerd and Idaho Lt. Gov. Brad Little.
