What is a nonprofit organization? Legally, it is a designation from the IRS. Practically, it is people helping others in need. Think about your local food bank and how much that one organization helps people who, after paying their rent, have little, or no, money left for groceries.
Nonprofits exist on grants, individual donations, fund-raising events, and volunteers. They are not a government entity so they can do more for their clients without political interference. This blog will highlight nonprofit organizations in the Ada County, Id area. Organizations that focus on literacy, babies and families, giving at-risk teens a chance for a career, early learning opportunities, the homeless population, battered women, and more, serve our community without asking for glory or even thanks. They serve because they care.
Greater Boise Rotary Foundation applauds these people and the organizations they serve.
