BOISE - Last year, Idahoans donated roughly $1 million dollars to more than 800 nonprofits and charities for Idaho Gives, a 24-hour fundraising event. The year before, it was about $1.1 million - a record for the statewide fundraiser.
This year's Idaho Gives is set for Thursday, May 4 from midnight to midnight. All donations go through the Idaho Gives website, where you can search hundreds of local nonprofits. You can even schedule your donation in advance.
Now in its fifth year, Idaho Gives is looking to reach a goal of $1.2 million. The previous record had already been passed hours before the donation deadline.
