By April 29, 2013Events, Fundraisers

PrintThe Idaho Non-profit Center is hosting a single day of online giving for all Idaho Non-profits in order to spotlight what they do for the State of Idaho called Idaho Gives, to be held on Thursday, May 2, 2013.

Swiftsure Ranch will be participating in three different ways:

The Online Campaign:
All donations will occur ONLINE on May 2, and will qualify Swiftsure Ranch for additional cash prizes and matching funds. You can help us to reach our goal by visiting this link:

You can donate on May 2 or set up the donation in advance to occur on Idaho Gives day.

AceyIdaho Gives in the Ketchum Town Square:
With 17 other Wood River Non-profits, Swiftsure Ranch will be present in the Ketchum Town Square from Noon to 2PM on Thursday May 2. We will have several program horses on hand along with some of our adaptive tack for display.
Other participants will have information and activities like photo ops with Dolly the Sheep from the Trailing of the Sheep Festival, adoptable dogs and cats from the Animal Shelter, and other great opportunities to learn about the non-profits in our community. Other contests, things to try, and giveaways promise to make this a fun part of your day.

Local radio stations KECH and KDPI will be interviewing Non-Profits about the event in studio from 11 to Noon and then on site in the Town Square. From there, you can stroll into the Visitors Center to get help making your online donation.

Idaho Gives at the Ketchum/Sun Valley Visitors Center:
Nearly 40 Wood River Non-profits will be collaborating to host a live event at the Ketchum/Sun Valley Visitors Center from 8AM to 5PM on Thursday, May 2 and Swiftsure Ranch is among them.

Representatives of the organizations will be on hand with computers and laptops at the Visitor’s Center to help make your online donation fun and easy. Your donation will help the Swiftsure Ranch achieve matching funds and cash prizes from the Idaho Non-profit Center and its generous sponsors, St. Luke’s Health Systems and Idaho Credit Union.

Donor stickers will entitle donors to a free tall drink at Starbuck or a 2-for-1 deal on drinks and appetizers at the Cornerstone Bar and Grill.

We hope we can inspire people to come out and find out what we do, have some fun, and encourage them to become first time donors. This is also an opportunity to help us qualify for matching funds and cash prizes for those who wish to give in addition to their regular yearly contribution.
