United Way of Moscow/Latah County Receives Award for Generosity
Along with their fellow Idahoans, United Way of Moscow/Latah County was honored at the North Idaho Philanthropy Day celebration on November 9th. The Outstanding Non-profit award was given to them and their good works was showcased during the online event.
Winners were chosen by the Idaho Philanthropy Day judges committee. They study each nomination and decide which ones best encompass the spirit of philanthropy including, time, talent, treasure, and involvement in the community.
“Every year the selection process becomes harder and harder,” said Amy Little, CEO of the Idaho Nonprofit Center. “Idaho has so many impressive citizens and we cannot wait to give their generosity center stage this fall.”
Like many events in 2020, the Idaho Philanthropy Day ceremony was hosted virtually. Serve Idaho program supervisor Renee Bade said “Our main goal will always be to recognize the folks that invest in their communities and show them our appreciation. Moving online will not stop us from cheering them on.”
Idaho Philanthropy Day is organized by Serve Idaho, the Governor’s Commission on Service and Volunteerism, and the Idaho Nonprofit Center. The annual ceremonies were revitalized in 2017 by Idaho Association of Fundraising Professionals, Idaho Community Foundation, Idaho Women’s Charitable Foundation, and Idaho Nonprofit Center.
The awards are presented by Wells Fargo with additional sponsors Thrivent, Clif Bar, the Advocates, Rotary Club of Boise Centennial, Fluor Idaho, Idaho Women’s Charitable Foundation, and First Nonprofit.
