May 1 is Idaho Gives day. A 24-hour period of statewide charitable giving, Idaho Gives will make a difference for Jannus Programs which serve people throughout this state.
What’s more, your online donation on May 1 has the potential to be multiplied many times over thanks to generous contest prizes and matching awards that will be given throughout the day.
Idaho Gives is an event. It’s a movement. And it’s going to be huge. On May 1, people throughout our community and all across the state will be talking about and giving to their favorite nonprofits. Of course, we want them talking about and giving to MSG programs. Here is a list of the programs who will be seeking your support:
Agency for New Americans – helping over 100 refugees resettle in Boise each year;
Foster Grandparents and Retired & Senior Volunteer Program– matches nearly 650 seniors with meaningful volunteer opportunities;
Friends in Action – training, educating and supporting over 900 family caregivers and those they care for, including veteran and military families;
Global Gardens – provides training and technical assistance for over 600 refugees and Native Americans establish community and market gardens;
Idaho Center for Fiscal Policy – provides nonpartisan analysis of Idaho fiscal’s policy;
Idaho Kids Count – most sought after resource for data and research on state policy affecting the well-being of children;
Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline – answers over 1,000 calls annually from at risk callers, including veterans and military;

The better we do on May 1, the more likely we are to have those donations amplified with the additional prize money. This is also an opportunity to further raise our profile and interest new people in our work, thereby growing our donor base.
