BOISE -- Hundreds of Idaho charities and non-profits now have more than $782,000 to help their causes.

We celebrated Idaho Gives Day on Thursday, as nearly 8,000 people made donations to the charity of their choice.

One of those -- the Boys and Girls Club of Meridian, was our charity of choice at KTVB.

In phone and online donations, we raised more than $21,000.

And, several generous donors decided to match and contribute another $30,000 as well. The money raised will go toward a new gym at the Meridian location.

Also, for small non-profits, Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers of the Magic Valley raised nearly $9,000.

In the medium category, more than $13,000 was contributed to the Boise Bike Project.

And for large non-profits, the Idaho Humane Society raised the most, more than $23,000.

Again, in total, over $782,000 was raised in just one day. Thanks to everyone who donated.
