Idaho Community Foundation

The mission of the Idaho Community Foundation is to 'Enrich the Quality of Life Throughout Idaho.'

The Foundation does not define what that means; rather, ICF invites communities statewide to describe - through the applications they submit - what is needed to make life better for the people in their town.

To achieve its mission, ICF gathers funds from donors, helping them achieve their philanthropic objectives; grows the funds over time through a sound investment process; and grants the funds for a broad variety of philanthropic projects statewide.
