INL, on behalf of corporate funding provided by Battelle Energy Alliance, supports philanthropic projects from nonprofit agencies that focus on health and human services, disadvantaged youth, environment and sustainability, veterans, civic activities, culture, and the arts. The top priority of INL’s community giving program is to support the basic needs of children and the underprivileged. The program provides community investment through corporate donations as well as employee charitable contributions through an annual United Way campaign, Idaho Gives, Christmas for Families and other programs.
CHARITABLE DONATION REQUESTS
INL’s community outreach donation process is conducted on an annual basis. You may apply for a grant for fiscal year 2021 beginning in September 2020. The submission deadline is Oct. 15, 2020. Please view the guidelines for donation requests.
Considering the COVID-19 pandemic, the strategy to support the greatest needs of Idaho communities is being evaluated to ensure alignment with laboratory policies, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, state of Idaho, and public health guidance. Please note that as official guidance is updated, the criteria will be adjusted to meet the new standard(s).
Community grants will be evaluated employing the following criteria:
Evaluation of the critical needs met with the associated funding request
Number of community members positively impacted
Implementation of physical and/or social distancing
The structure of the evaluation guidelines is to allow decision-makers to clearly define the targeted impacts and ensure alignment with governing policies to enable community health and safety.
