Idaho Gives is normally a one-day event to raise money and awareness for non-profits in the Gem State.

Due to the increased need to support the non-profit sector, the online giving period for this event went from one day to two weeks. Donations are being collected until May 7.

And some folks are finding unique ways to give. For example, a group of Idaho executive directors got together and made a commitment to donate.

Joining Idaho Matters live today to talk more about this are Jimmy Halliburton, executive director of the Boise Bicycle Project, Karan Tucker, executive director of Jannus, and Erin Anderson, executive director of the Idaho Botanical Garden.
