The success of Together Treasure Valley depends on input from the community. You’ve spoken and we’ve listened – and acted on some of your ideas. With hundreds of ideas and suggestions submitted from people like you through this website we are excited to share with you the projects we have funded to date.
In 2016, our team of community minded companies vowed to find and fund projects that would have a lasting and meaningful impact in our valley. We achieved this goal with several community projects. First we made six library grants benefiting readers of all ages at Boise, Caldwell, Eagle, Garden City, Meridian and Nampa Public Libraries. Then we invested in two major public artwork projects spanning the Valley from the Vista corridor in Boise to Caldwell’s Indian Creek Park. And finally, we provided 50 “Together” benches to be placed throughout the valley to promote community conversations.
In 2017, our partners continued to choose projects to fund that will benefit those who call the Treasure Valley home. Last spring we invested in foundational literacy tools for 7,500 incoming kindergarten students across seven school districts in the Treasure Valley to help some of our littlest citizens prepare for a bright educational future. Then over the summer our partners funded a community project, which focused on educating and enriching the lives of a group of children in the Treasure Valley. We announced four more projects earlier this fall that span across the Treasure Valley benefiting incoming students and their teachers, local library patrons, community members and families experiencing a housing crisis. Another exciting project recently announcement benefits The Salvation Army, by providing funding towards a playground on their new campus, planned for West Boise. “We are thrilled that Together Treasure Valley can make an impact in our communities on so many different levels,” said Debra Leithauser, past President & Publisher of the Idaho Statesman and current partner in Together Treasure Valley. “Our goal of making the Treasure Valley better is uniquely exemplified in each of these projects.” See our projects page for details and watch for more upcoming project announcements.
As 2018 approaches, we will continue to seek community input on ways our partners can continue to make an impact in the Treasure Valley. We want to hear your ideas for projects, and your concerns and hopes for the future of the Treasure Valley.
