BOISE, Idaho — Idaho Gives has kicked off!
Donations go to more than 600 nonprofits around the Gem State. Those organizations employ more than 64,000 people.
You don't have to give a lot to make an impact. Donations start at just $10.
Many of these nonprofits can use extra help because they're helping so many people right now during the coronavirus pandemic.
Donations will be accepted online at IdahoGives.org or by phone at 1-877-ID-Gives, M-F, 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. starting April 23 and going for a full two weeks until May 7.
If you're having trouble choosing a nonprofit to give to, we have created a list of some in southern Idaho that could use your help.
And we know that this is a difficult time for many people and there's a lot of uncertainty because of the coronavirus.
So, if you need assistance help is available to you on our community page.
Donors around the state have contributed more than $1.7 million for this year's Idaho Gives, and there's one more week to go.
Last year, more 11,800 donors raised nearly $2 million for 589 Idaho nonprofits during Idaho Gives.
Since Idaho Gives began in 2013, the annual campaigns have raised a total of more than $10 million.
