Idaho Community Foundation awards $376,000 to nonprofits
BOISE – The Gladys E. Langroise Advised Fund in the Idaho Community Foundation has awarded grants totaling $376,000 to nonprofits in every region of Idaho. The Langroise Fund advisors also agreed to allow ICF to distribute an additional $127,267 through its three regional grant cycles.
The College of Idaho received the largest grant of $65,000 followed by the Boise Philharmonic Association at $63,000 and the Children’s Home Society at $60,000.
The Gladys E. Langroise Advised Fund was established through a $15 million bequest to the Idaho Community Foundation from Boise philanthropist Gladys Langroise. It supports the health, education and welfare of children, including college students. Langroise died in early 2000, just prior to her 100th birthday.
The fund advisers annually recommend grants that address what they believe Mrs. Langroise would have considered areas of special interest or greatest need.
