ICF gets new logo, website

November 16, 2018
The Idaho Community Foundation has been helping people throughout the state of Idaho support their communities and fulfill their charitable intent for 30 years.

Earlier this week, they celebrated this success at their 30th Anniversary Bash where they reviewed the past 30 years, launched a new logo and website, and raised more than $26,000 to increase their future grant making.

ICF is the second largest granting foundation in Idaho and distributed nearly $9 million in grants and nearly $500,000 in scholarships in 2017.

By the end of this year, the community foundation will have distributed more than $120 million in grants and scholarships in its 30-year history, thanks to the power of collective giving.

“We reached this point with help from thousands of generous Idahoans who pooled their gifts at the Idaho Community Foundation,” said Karen Bilowith, ICF President and CEO.

“And because many of these gifts are endowed, their generosity will continue forever and will benefit Idaho’s future generations.”

You can help ICF continue to enrich lives and communities in Idaho by donating to the Forever Idaho fund in your region by sending a text to 41444 with the message: 30idahocf <space> donation amount <space> your name.

Forever Idaho Funds are ICF’s most flexible funds and provide grants to nonprofits, schools and other community organizations through the Regional Grant Cycles.

As of June, 2018, Boundary County has received these grants for this year:
  • 4-H – $2,500 to provide curriculum, art supplies, craft materials,
educational games and healthy snacks.
  • Gardeners for Regional Organic Wellbeing (GROW) – $2,500 to provide a garden space, including raised beds for seniors and people with limited mobility, to those who need it and to increase production of organic produce for the food bank and other community groups.
  • Trinity Lutheran Church, Inc. of Bonners Ferry – $3,500 to alleviate childhood hunger in Boundary County by providing school-age children in need with supplemental food on weekends.
