The Brainerd Foundation, which has funded organizations like ours that protect the environment of the Northwest and build broad support for conservation, is sunsetting at the end of this year. To celebrate its 25 years of successful grantmaking, Brainerd just released a beautiful new booklet to highlight notable achievements, including many of Idaho’s conservation successes, such as the protection of the Boise Foothills and the Boulder-White Clouds Wilderness and the advancement of clean energy commitments by Idaho’s largest utility and city. You can read the booklet here: Brainerd Foundation Celebrating 25 Years.
We cannot express our gratitude enough for the Brainerd’s generous support of Conservation Voters for Idaho over the years. We would not be the organization we are today without their help. Please join me in thanking them for helping to advance not only significant conservation achievements here in Idaho, but across the Northwest.
