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.
Village Capital announced the winners of the $50,000 prize awarded to social entrepreneurs who don’t “self-define as social entrepreneurs”. The winners didn’t start out thinking of themselves as social enterprises.
