The Idaho Gives campaign raises money for hundreds of non-profit organizations across the state of Idaho. Today we are featuring NeighborWorks Pocatello.

Executive Director Mark Dahlquist says the money they receive from Idaho Gives' will go toward enhancing local neighborhoods, beautification projects, upgrades for homes for low and moderate income homeowners, and neighborhood cleanups.

Their goal is to raise $10,000 through Idaho Gives to do at least 15 home improvement projects this year.

Dahlquist says, "the one thing that I love about Idaho Gives is it's flexible funding and the organization can deploy that money in whatever way it needs to and be quick with the deployment about it and so I just can't under emphasize that the private donations that we receive from the community that they are just so highly valuable and they are so flexible for us."
