At ICL, spring arrives with a few of our favorite things. Warmer weather, wildflowers, plans for trips into Idaho’s backcountry, and one of the best days of the year – Idaho Gives on May 3!  

Thanks to the support of the Idaho Nonprofit Center, Idaho Gives is a full day to celebrate the amazing nonprofit community in Idaho. Over 24 hours, funds are raised online to support the excellent work of nonprofits throughout the state – organizations that have a real impact on the health of our communities and improve the quality of life for us all. Idaho’s nonprofits are truly remarkable and make Idaho a better place to live. We are proud to be part of this fantastic community!

Our work to protect the air you breathe, water you drink and places you love is as important as ever, and in these interesting times we’re facing challenges like never before. But we are proud to do this work, and with our dedicated staff and more than 10,000 members, we continue to work toward and achieve successes for Idaho’s environment every day. Our staff of 20 in three offices around the state works tirelessly to protect Idaho, now and for future generations. We work on a breadth of conservation issues and create collaborative solutions that make sense for Idaho.

I hope you will consider making a online gift to support this work on May 3 for Idaho Gives. Thanks to a few of our most generous donors, your gift will be matched up to $18,000! To have your gift count toward the match, be sure to donate at the Idaho Gives site  and not here on our website.

Well over 100 years ago when Idaho became a state, Idahoans chose the state motto Esto perpetua – let it be forever – to celebrate the wealth of natural resources present in Idaho. Of course, since then there have been some changes, but we are incredibly fortunate that much of Idaho remains beautiful and wild. Over the last 45 years, ICL has worked hard on your behalf to keep it that way. The world is changing, but with your support we will protect the special places and resources that make Idaho  Idaho  and ensure that some places stay wild – forever.

We certainly don’t do this work alone. Our dedicated members keep ICL moving forward. Through their partnership and collaboration, we accomplish great things. Join our community on May 3 by making an online gift for Idaho Gives and help us protect Idaho!
