We have some exciting news to share with you! As you know, Girls on the Run in the Treasure Valley serves over 350 girls in our area and most of our girls are on scholarship. We have recently partnered with Idaho Gives to help raise money for our program and the girls in it.
The Idaho Gives mission statement is to build nonprofit capacity through one big day of giving. Idaho Gives is providing non-profits around the state with a day that will allow them to raise important funds to continue their programming. We see the great opportunities Idaho Gives could provide for girls in the Treasure Valley and we are ecstatic. On May 2nd we are asking you, your friends, your family, all of our supporters to log onto idahogives.org and donate to Girls on the Run Idaho-Treasure Valley. We would love to see some new names on our list of supporters, so please spread the word! There’s nothing we love more than meeting new friends!
Idaho Gives is providing us with a 24 hour window in which to collect donations, May 2nd midnight to midnight. During the donation period there are also special prizes nonprofits can receive to amplify their donation amount. Idaho Gives will be looking into each program and identifying their top donor and top money donations, in order for them to win extra money. Idaho Gives will also be handing out Golden Tickets! From 9-6pm, on the hour, one donor’s name will be drawn out of an electronic hat and the organization that person supported will be given an extra $1,000 dollars! So we ask you to donate throughout this period to help us grow healthy happy girls throughout our community. With your help we can begin to see the change we know we can make.
For more updates about Idaho Gives day and to join in on the excitement please follow our Idaho Gives Day countdown on the Girls on the Run website and on the Girls on the Run-Treasure Valley and Treasure-Valley SoleMates Facebook pages. You can also follow Idaho Gives on Facebook and join their event group for more information and updates.
