PCEI is thrilled to be one of over 400 organizations participating in Idaho Gives, the first statewide giving day ever in Idaho! Idaho Gives is expected to raise $500,000 from 5,000 individual givers in 24 hours, matched by $50,000 from corporate donors.
Every gift to PCEI through Idaho Gives will help us continue to connect kids to nature through hands-on learning experiences. With your help, Idaho, we can:
- keep our 2012-2013 programs at low- or no-cost
- increase the number of programs we can deliver
- support projects without dedicated funding (such as our Storytime Series, Animals of the Night and PCEI Playscape)
As a result, we can help more kids ignite their curiosity and build lifelong connections to nature through experimentation, exploration, and playful investigation.
Help Spread the Word!
As a supporter of PCEI, you can have a big impact by:
- adding comments to PCEI’s Idaho Gives page and PCEI’s Guidestar page
- telling your family and friends about PCEI and Idaho Gives
- inviting your friends and family to our Facebook event
- sharing our story on Facebook, Twitter and other social media
Your Impact Will Be Multiplied!
Every gift of $10 or more* will increase the odds of winning thousands more for PCEI’s work in education! You and your friends will have the opportunity to multiply the impact of your gifts to PCEI through hourly competitions, random drawings, and other giving incentives. The top five organizations with the most unique donors will receive bonus grants of $3,000, $1,000, $500, $250, and $250 respectively.
*While you can give to PCEI through Idaho Gives at any time before May 2nd, only donations made on May 2 or scheduled for May 2 will count towards the competitions, random drawings and other incentives.
