Every year, the “Idaho Gives Day” showcases dozens of Idaho non-profits and encourages people to donate to keep them alive. This year, the one-day event has been expanded to two weeks to try to help nonprofits during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Boise State Public Radio’s George Prentice sat down with Amy Little, the president and CEO of the Idaho Nonprofit Center, who says the pandemic will cause many Idaho non-profits to disappear. 

 

As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.

 

Idaho Matters is working on a story about how families are dealing with school closures during the coronavirus outbreak. Parents: What do your days look like now? Are you creating structure, or are you letting your kids have an extended spring break? Kids: What do you like about being at home, and what do you miss about school and being with your friends? Using your smartphone, please send us a voice memo with your family. Tell us about your daily routine, or about what your’e doing to stay distracted or learning. Send the voice memo to idahomatters@boisestate.edu. We might use your message in an upcoming show.
