Idaho Nonprofits Make our Local Communities Great – It’s Time to Let That Secret Out of the Bag
By Kevin Bailey, CEO, Idaho Nonprofit Center
Even as someone who has spent my whole career in nonprofits in various capacities it had never really occurred to me just how much nonprofits touch every aspect of our lives as Idahoans. Previously, I had always thought of the nonprofit sector as the mortar that fills the space between the bricks in our society. However, I think that analogy has got it exactly backwards.
Nonprofits are the bricks themselves that great communities are built on. In short, nonprofits are essential to our way of life in Idaho. Of course, you and our friends in organizations across the sector inherently know this.
Thank you Tammy Tilzey, Director Foundant for Grantseekers, for your continued partnership and service to the nonprofit community!

Hello, everyone! My name is Ian Velikoff. I am the new Director of Programs and Learning for the Idaho Nonprofit Center. First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who attended the Idaho Nonprofit Statewide Conference this year. We had an amazing turnout and were blown away by our incredible speakers and presenters.

A little about me:
I grew up in Boise with a background in working and volunteering with local nonprofits. I am also a recent Boise State University graduate with a Master of Business and Administration. During my studies, I had the opportunity to work as a graduate assistant for the Boise State University Cycle Learning Center while also volunteering for the Boise Bicycle Project to help provide transportation alternatives to families in need.
I am incredibly excited to start working with the Idaho Nonprofit Center. In my new role, I hope to develop and improve the programs that our organization offers. I recognize the value in the nonprofit sector and the integral role they play in supporting local communities. Because of this, my goal is to provide Idaho nonprofits with the tools and resources they need to thrive.
My door is always open if you'd like to connect. Please, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
