Why Support Connect Kootenai?
Connect Kootenai was formed from the shared vision of community members who came forward in 2014 to convey their ideas for a bright future for Kootenai county… a legacy we leave for generations to come. That collective spirit—thousands of individuals speaking from one voice—is not only what formed Connect Kootenai, it is what is bringing the community’s vision to life today.
Hundreds of community partners, volunteers, donors, and supporters are working hard each day to implement the strategies from that vision to create a bright future for our region and its citizens of today and tomorrow. Your support goes directly toward implementing action in our community to make the community’s vision of what Kootenai county could be in years to come.
Why your support matters
- The Vision and Implementation Plan are owned by the community and stewarded by Connect Kootenai. It is your plan and we need you to help achieve it.
- Connect Kootenai partners with a wide range of community members, including businesses, government, education, and civic and community-based organizations to ensure that the community is engaged in every step of the process.
- Connect Kootenai is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to facilitating collaboration among community partners with the time, talents, and energy to bring the shared vision of our community to life.
- We are creating a bright future, together.
The majority of Connect Kootenai’s support comes from financial and in-kind donations from partner businesses throughout the community. We could not be shaping the future of Kootenai county for our citizens and generations to come without your generous support.
