Building a stronger Idaho in 2022

$43.6 Million in grants throughout Idaho supporting limitless learning, innovative leaders, and building stronger communities.

At the heart of our work is a desire to accelerate opportunities in Idaho – cultivating and supporting partnerships that allow Idahoans to thrive and feel connected in their communities. To that end, our goal is to make Idaho an exemplary model for innovative learning, a world-class destination for accessible recreation, and the most desirable state for life after the military.

In 2022 we granted $43.6 million toward innovative projects, organizations, and people who embody this vision for Idaho. Our giving reflects an Idaho that offers exemplary learning opportunities and one that enhances our collective sense of community. And most importantly, we believe in making Idaho stronger by investing in the potential of its individuals.
