|Mission||Fund for Idaho’s mission is to create a more just, compassionate, environmentally sound and healthy society in Idaho through strategic grant-making.|
|Description||"Change, Not Charity"|
What we do...
We pool resources from forward thinking individuals and businesses to support community-led efforts for human rights and environmental integrity, support the training and leadership development necessary to strengthen this work, and cultivate the conditions that make lasting, long-term change possible.
What we support...
We distribute these resources as grants to grassroots organizations with little or no access to other financial resources and that are often too small, too new, or working on issues too controversial for traditional funding sources.
Our Giving Priorities...
We focus on supporting community-based organizations working for human rights (empowering marginalized communities, including women, LGBTQ, those with disabilities, those with mental illness, immigrants, and rural communities; and working for economic fairness, including food security, health care access, and access to shelter) and environmental health (protecting land & people from contamination, fostering informed consumer choices, and promoting renewable energy development).
Advantages to giving to Fund for Idaho...
We bring together those who want to invest in justice with those who are actively pursuing justice. We invest in Idaho’s future by supporting projects that seek out the root causes of social problems and pose new solutions. Our community-based strategic philanthropy offers a unique alternative to traditional charitable giving.
