Idaho Philanthropy Day
Idaho Philanthropy Day is celebrated statewide with an online award ceremony to recognize the amazing philanthropic work of nonprofit organizations, foundations, businesses, and individuals nominated by their peers. The Idaho Philanthropy Day awards encompass the spirit of philanthropy including, time, talent, treasure, and involvement in the community.
Revitalized in 2017 by Idaho Association of Fundraising Professionals, Idaho Community Foundation, Idaho Women’s Charitable Foundation, and Idaho Nonprofit Center.
The Idaho Philanthropy Day committee is excited for our partnership with Serve Idaho and adopting the Brightest Star (Adult Volunteer) Award and Volunteer Manager Award. It's such an honor to join efforts to celebrate Idaho’s philanthropic spirit with an amazing award category directly highlighting the volunteerism of adult Idahoans.
