Aiming high to make a big difference


There are kids that have don’t have the means to take care of basic needs. That’s why we are embarking on a mission to create a perpetual source of income to support our work in our community. We aim to raise $250,000 through donors like yourselves through an endowment. This goal will allow us to impact AT LEAST 15,000 kids EVERY 10 YEARS.

OUR STORY


The Twin Falls Optimist Club has served the youth of our area for over 50 years and has taken the next step in helping the youth needs with the Twin Falls Optimist Foundation a 501(c)(3).

With the steady growth in our area over the years the needs of our youth have also grown. Programs like Coats for Kids have gone from distributing a few hundred used coats to over one thousand new coats, hats, and gloves last year. It has become obvious that fundraising alone would not meet the worthy requests our Optimist Board hears each month.

FUNDING STRUCTURE


We are excited that the Foundation will allow our club to seek a new class of donations from entities that require the tax status of a 501(c)(3). This includes direct gifting, grants, endowments, estate planning, and other foundations. All our fundraising donations are now under the Foundation.

The Foundation administration and operation expenses are provided by the Twin Falls Optimist club so 100% of the donations go directly to the youth needs in our community. The CPA firm of Tilley & Lincoln under the direction of Douglas Lincoln manage the Foundation funds.

Our focus & mission as a civic group has always been our Youth. The Twin Falls Optimist Club has a long history of serving the youth of our community and is a strong club with 70 community members offering their time and talent to the youth. We look forward to the benefits the Foundation will afford our youth.

For more information, you can contact us at [email protected]. A formal presentation can be scheduled to provide you with more details.
