Join Idahoans on May 2nd in supporting the non-profits that help make our communities a better place for all. On Idaho Gives Day, your donations have the potential to be multiplied many times over thanks to generous contest prizes and matching awards. 38 organizations in the Wood River Valley are involved and welcome your participation!
Ways to Give on May 2nd:
- Schedule your donation now to take place on May 2nd.
- Visit our Idaho Gives page on May 2nd and donate during the 24 hour challenge.
- Visit the Ketchum/Sun Valley Visitor’s Center on May 2nd between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to make your online donation and receive incentives provided by the Cornerstone Bar & Grill and Starbucks.
Idaho Gives is a day for philanthropy across Idaho. A day for nonprofits to tell their stories and share with you how their work enhances communities throughout our state. A day for Idahoans to come together with one voice of support for our nonprofits, big and small. A day for you to find your passion and share it!
We’re hoping you will join us here on May 2, 2013 to make a contribution to The Hunger Coalition and other organizations you support in our valley, and maybe get a few friends who are new to donating to join you. Our goal is to get people involved who haven’t necessarily donated to an organization before. It takes everyone’s help to keep our community and non-profits strong.
From midnight -11:59pm a share of every dollar raised by Idaho nonprofits will be matched with funds from the Idaho Gives award pool. In addition, the top five organizations with the most unique donors (nonprofits are divided by size) will receive bonus grants of $3,000, $1,000, $500, $250, and $250 respectively.
Help The Hunger Coalition stock the shelves and continue to provide food for our hungry neighbors! To be eligible for donation incentives, you can also donate at the Sun Valley – Ketchum Visitor’s Center (Starbucks) from 8-5 p.m. on May 2nd.

The Hunger Coalition believes in the generous spirit of this community and hopes everyone will join together to ensure all our local families have an opportunity to celebrate, and be thankful, this Thanksgiving. Continue reading
