BCT - 2021 IWCF Grantee

Boise Contemporary Theater's Ben Burdick shares with members their goals for the upcoming BIPOC Playwrights Festival supported by a 2021 IWCF grant!

BIPOC – Boise Contemporary Theater

In our recent Grantee Spotlight, we shared the work of Boise Contemporary Theater and their upcoming new festival. We were in error and misleading to the intent of the grant in the title of their festival, which will take place this August. The correct title is BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) Playwrights Festival – not BIPOC (Boise Idaho Playwrights of Color) Festival. For the latest information on this exciting event click the link below. https://bctheater.org/bipoc/

BIPOC – Boise Contemporary Theater We tell stories here

2021 Grantee Spotlight! Boise Contemporary Theater will bring artists of color to Boise in an annual summer play-reading festival focused on the work of BIPOC (Boise Idaho Playwright of Color)! As Boise grows with unprecedented speed, the city's demographics are expanding and growing with it but the vast majority of arts and cultural offerings here do not reflect these changes. Both here, and nationally, there has been a reckoning in the arts world to amplify and support the voices and stories of underrepresented people in order to help promote diversity, equity and inclusion. With support from our grant, BCT will run their first BIPOC summer play-reading festival to entertain and inspire those people who may not have previously seen themselves reflected on a stage or through live storytelling. In alignment with the mission and vision of BCT, the hope is that this event will “inspire our community to examine our perspectives and better ourselves, each other, and the world around us through exposure to thought-provoking stories of the human experience.”

2021 Grantee Spotlight! The Treasure Valley Pollinator Project led by the Ada Soil & Water Conservation District, seeks to promote pollinator education to the community! IWCF funding supports their efforts to plant 64,000 flowering plants, hiring an entomologist, and developing educational materials all to engage the community in maintaining healthy habitat for native insects, pollinator species and beneficial insects that are cornerstones in our environment and crucial to our ability to produce food and seeds.

Giving while female: Women are more likely to donate to charities than men of equal means 03/03/2021

Giving while female: Women are more likely to donate to charities than men of equal means

Check out this interesting article!
"Women, whether they’re rich, poor or somewhere in between, are perhaps more likely than men to think about giving in broad terms, participating in a variety of charitable activities.

During crises and otherwise women seem especially likely to give by volunteering their time and talents, in addition to donating money to support causes they care about."

#womensphilanthropy

Giving while female: Women are more likely to donate to charities than men of equal means Whether they are single or married, giving as a group or on their own, women express their generosity in distinct ways.

Thoughtful Philanthropic Giving

In the Fall of 2001, a small group of women founded an organization whose mission it was to inspire women with the power of collaborative philanthropy – Idaho Women’s Charitable Foundation. Thirty-four motivated women joined during our inaugural year. Today, the membership is more than 400 strong.

Just as our organization has grown, so has our ability to make a difference. We have invested more than $2.2 million in 102 local projects with our pooled-fund grants. These grantees range north to McCall, west to the Oregon border and east to Gooding. One of the unique aspects of IWCF membership is the opportunity to designate $500 of your contribution to organizations of your choice. Those designations, to more than 400 other grantees, have increased our overall giving to over $4.4 million.
