As the state of Idaho’s largest online fundraiser is set to kick off Monday, May 1, College of Western Idaho (CWI) Foundation is excited to announce it will take part in Idaho Gives to raise money for students and resources around the College.
Idaho Gives is a program from the Idaho Nonprofit Center that takes place every spring designed to bring communities around the state together to raise money and awareness for Idaho nonprofits. Since the inaugural event in 2013, Idahoans have raised nearly $20 million for participating organizations, one donation at a time.
Money raised for CWI Foundation will help purchase a cap and gown for a graduate, stock the CWI Food Pantries, fund the CWI Student Emergency Fund, create scholarships, and more.
A donation to the Foundation will help the College’s mission of affordable and accessible education to students which will advance the local and global workforce.
The Foundation is looking forward to the impact participation in Idaho Gives will have on the lives of students around campus.
“CWI Foundation is proud to be a part of Idaho Gives and the ability to help change the lives of the people in Idaho,” said Foundation Director, Mike Jensen. “Please join me in making supporting non-profits in the great state of Idaho.”
Idaho Gives will launch Monday, May 1, and run through Thursday, May 4. Donors may choose to make a gift to one of the nearly 650 non-profits registered for Idaho Gives, including the CWI Foundation.
