Our Work in Communities

The Idaho Community Foundation is a philanthropic leader, bringing together generous donors, local knowledge and strategic vision to make a positive, community-driven impact where we live. We do this in several ways:

Our leadership efforts support lasting change in Idaho using community-driven solutions to address local issues. Programs include Forever Idaho, Project Neighborly, Community Conversations and the COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund for Idaho (2020-2021).

Our Regional Councils keep us deeply rooted in all Idaho communities. We rely on them to advise our Forever Idaho Regional Grant program, ensuring that nearly $1 million in Forever Idaho grants meet the greatest needs in the state.  

Partnerships with regional and statewide organizations, including women’s giving circles, are important to our work. We work together to create lasting change by putting decisions about local issues in the hands of those working to solve them.
