We care about the communities where we live and work, and we give back in many ways — including through financial donations. Some donations come from the company, and others come directly from employees.
Employee Community Funds
Employees established IDACORP’s Employee Community Funds more than 50 years ago. This employee-governed organization gives funding to qualified local 501(c)(3) agencies that provide health services and human services support.
To apply for funding, complete one of the following online forms:
Once an agency is approved for funding, that agency may reapply every two years to be considered for continued funding.
Community contributions range from support for capital fund drives to sponsorship of nonprofit fundraising events to non-cash donations like awarding retired company vehicles to emergency-response organizations.
Nonprofit organizations can use this online application to review eligibility guidelines and apply to request a community contribution.
