"The rapidly transmissible omicron variant has upended plans for providing in-person service to clients in need and has again delayed returns to the office for millions of nonprofit employees who have worked remotely for nearly two years."
Nonprofits will be Vital to Distributing Federal Funds Efficiently
By Kevin Bailey, CEO of the Idaho Nonprofit Center. This letter has been co-signed by 22 nonprofit executives from across Idaho listed below.
Over the past two – difficult – years, nonprofits have been working overtime to help put dinner on the table, ensure children have winter coats, and help families pay rent. Organizations around the state still have waiting lists to serve people with these vital, immediate needs. Idaho prides itself on private sector solutions and small government and now is the time for local cities, counties, and the state to let nonprofits lead.

Before we jump into 2022, let’s take a look at where we left off in 2021. Below is a brief report on several policy issues from 2021 that impact the nonprofit sector:
"While there is only so much we can control in terms of what 2022 holds, I would encourage us all as nonprofit employees and leaders to prioritize our own mental health and wellbeing as well as that of our teams and staff."
Dear Idaho Nonprofit sector,
As we venture into 2022, like all of you, I have spent some time reflecting on 2021 and my first five months as CEO of the Idaho Nonprofit Center. The first word that comes to mind is: gratitude.
“For all that has been. Thank you. For all that is to come, Yes!” – Dag Hammarskjold.
This quote has really resonated with me as we turn the page and enter the new year with (admittedly) a fair amount of trepidation about what the future holds. It may also sound odd to be in the business of “thanking” all that has been in 2021. But in our sector, once again, you have all risen to the occasion, pivoting once again to meet the needs of our communities. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Idaho’s nonprofits are truly made up of everyday heroes.
