Idaho Gives is a statewide giving program that is usually one day of giving. This year, Idaho has the ability to give for FOUR DAYS! taking place from May 1st to May 4th, 2023, and it’s all online! This year, people across our state come together for Idaho nonprofits. It’s a time to celebrate the awesome work of Idaho’s nonprofits and benefit from the power of many. Idaho comes together – be a part of it!

TVDSA needs your help!
Please mark your calendar and tell your friends – We need your participation to not only support us directly but to help us participate in the contests during Idaho Gives. Each year Idaho Gives awards special bonuses and prizes for each category. Every donation qualifies us for a different contest. You can review the prize structure here to see when would be the best time for you to donate – you can even split it up over several smaller donations during the events to give us a better chance! In a previous year, we had a diligent donor that won us a $500 prize for their well timed, minimum donation!
