The purpose of Sun Valley Institute for Resilience is to advance community resilience in Idaho’s Wood River Valley region by educating, investing and collaborating to ensure that the economy, environment and people thrive.

About Your Gift

A gift to SVIR offers flexibility by allowing us to support multiple incentives and pivot to organizational areas that are most in need. Often, these gifts support staff time that is crucial to the successful implementation of our programs. In other words, a general gift to SVIR empowers collaboration, creates connection, and is power on the ground dollars for all of our community's most urgent needs.

Other Ways to Give

Sun Valley Institute for Resilience accepts gifts that are consistent with its mission and that support its core programs, as well as special projects. Donations and other forms of support will generally be accepted from individuals, partnerships, corporations, foundations, government agencies, or other entities. SVIR encourages donors to seek their own tax or legal counsel before making a gift.

Recurring Donation: Monthly giving has a substantial impact on our mission by allowing SVIR to plan and execute programs knowing there will be consistent funding throughout the year. Monthly giving also allows supporters to spread the financial impact of their giving across the entire year, lessening the financial impact of larger, one-time donations. We hope you will consider a monthly recurring donation.

Gifts of Stock, Bonds & Mutual Funds: Make a bigger impact by donating long-term appreciated securities, including stock, bonds, and mutual funds, directly to SVIR. Compared with donating cash or selling your appreciated securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds, you may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax deduction.All marketable securities will be sold promptly upon receipt. To donate your appreciated securities, please contact Annie Keenan:Phone: 208-788-4780 Email:

Donor Advised Funds: A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a charitable giving account designed exclusively to invest, grow, and give assets to charities for meaningful and lasting impact. To donate through your DAF, please contact Annie Keenan: Phone: 208-788-4780 Email:
