Pride Foundation is the only LGBTQ community foundation in Idaho. Pride Foundation has been growing support for local Idaho organizations and scholars thanks to donors and volunteers.

As a donor-supported community foundation and a catalyst for change, we support transformative philanthropy, programs, and individuals in the Northwest that help people find joy and strength in who they are and where they are—in urban, rural, and remote communities.

Steve Martin is Pride Foundation’s full-time Regional Development Organizer in Idaho based in Boise. Steve travels throughout Idaho meeting donors, volunteers, grantees, and scholars from Sandpoint to Twin Falls, Boise to Idaho Falls, and points in between.

Contact Steve to learn more about Pride Foundation’s work in the Gem State and to find out how you can get involved. Be sure to sign up for Pride Foundation’s monthly eNewsletter to learn more about our supporters, grantees, and scholars. You can also read all of Steve’s Idaho stories online.
