Are you looking to participate in a nonprofit project in Boise, Idaho? If so, there are certain requirements you must meet in order to do so. The Idaho Gives and Idaho Nonprofit Center teams do not host in-person events or street parties during Idaho Gives week. Grants are awarded for projects that benefit community beautification and public recreation in southeastern Idaho, with a primary emphasis on landscaping and beautification projects. In order to participate in Idaho Gives, you must first confirm that your organization meets the applicable state fundraising requirements in states where you can request donors through the GiveGab platform.
As nonprofit organizations expand out of state or operate across the country, they must also meet the same requirements in other states. The fee to participate in Idaho Gives depends on the size of your organization and whether you are a member of the Idaho Nonprofit Center. To comply with the regulations, organizations that participate in Idaho Gives and that have been pre-verified to receive donations on GiveGab may need to provide additional information to maintain their verification status. GiveGab offers donors the option of increasing their donation by an amount equal to the fees that the non-profit organization will pay, so that the non-profit organization receives the full amount of the expected donation after the fees have been paid.
In addition to using GiveGab, non-profit organizations do not provide their donors with a breakdown of the part of their donation that is deductible (unless the donor receives something of value in return such as dinner, etc.). This structure will benefit participating nonprofit organizations by keeping more of the funds raised and will also help advertise Idaho Gives. We ask that you respect Idaho Gives as a whole and to support efforts made to raise funds and awareness for nonprofit organizations in Idaho.
