Partnerships

The Idaho Community Foundation is proud to partner with other organizations to strengthen the work of nonprofits, convene community leaders and celebrate philanthropy.

Census 2020
As Idaho’s only statewide community foundation, ICF is uniquely poised to contribute to a complete count for Census 2020 in several ways. We are helping to reach hard-to-count populations by partnering with the Northwest Area Foundation and others to provide more than $100,000 in grants to organizations working in 30 of Idaho’s 44 counties.

Pacific Northwest Resilient Landscapes Initiative
The Pacific Northwest’s quality of life and economy are intrinsically tied to the health of the region’s natural lands and waters. The accelerating effects of our changing climate, along with population growth and other factors, are exerting unprecedented pressure on the lands, waters, wildlife, and ways of life that make this region so exceptional.

Launched with a generous grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Land Trust Alliance, Oregon Community Foundation, Seattle Foundation and Idaho Community Foundation have formed the Pacific Northwest Resilient Landscapes Initiative to unite and empower people from across our region to protect our lands and waters now and for generations to come.

United for ALICE
ICF is a statewide champion supporter of the United Way ALICE Report: A Study of Financial Hardship. ALICE stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed.

The report shows that 40 percent of the 4.95 million households in Idaho, Oregon and Washington don’t earn enough to make ends meet. Nearly 2 million of those can’t afford a basic monthly budget of housing, food, childcare, healthcare, transportation and a smartphone. ALICE residents are people we all depend on every day. They are cashiers, childcare workers, food service personnel, librarians, teachers and more.

We will provide a link to the full report once it is available.
