About Us

The goal of GIVING GUIDE OF THE WOOD RIVER VALLEY is to build charitable awareness and provide a single resource about our valley’s nonprofit organizations. An inquiring volunteer, potential donor, or business leader now has available a concise platform highlighting the diverse opportunities to make a charitable difference in our community.

GIVING GUIDE OF THE WOOD RIVER VALLEY is a non-commercial guide featuring 501(c)(3) public charities creating a positive influence within the Wood River Valley. This Guide is an informational tool for residents and visitors who are interested in generating a tangible impression of their own.

The selected photographs offer a visual connection with the mission of each nonprofit. The concise text provides exposure to each organization’s unique voice.

If these pages evoke a reaction, we encourage you to become even more acquainted with the organizations by visiting their websites and social platforms. Contact the organizations and begin a new path of experience within our community
