We Work for Idaho.

WE LISTEN TO IDAHOANS.

To meet the needs of our growing and changing state, we are doing more than ever before. By 2028, our goal is to award $20 million in grants annually throughout the state, nearly double our current grantmaking.


WE HELP IDAHOANS SUPPORT THEIR COMMUNITY.

Our grants come from ICF charitable giving funds, created by an individual, family, company, or collective giving circle to meet their philanthropic goals.


WE HELP IDAHO NONPROFITS, SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS GROW AND THRIVE.

All ICF grants go to organizations that strengthen the fabric of our Idaho communities.
