Trends 2017: Idaho

Grantmaking to Idaho rose 13% between 2012 and 2014. Education and human services were top priority areas, capturing a combined 50% of grant dollars to the state. One-third of grant dollars awarded to Idaho for human services can be attributed to a $4 million grant from the J. A. & Kathryn Albertson Foundation — the top grantmaker both in and to the state — to the Boise-based Treasure Valley Family YMCA.

Compared to overall giving to the Northwest, Idaho grantees benefited from a notably larger share of funding for sports and recreation in 2014 (9% to Idaho vs. 2% to the Northwest), including a $79,119 grant from the Idaho Community Foundation in support of the John Jackson Rock Climbing team.
