Idaho Gives

24 Hours of Online Philanthropy
Yields Success!

It is such a pleasure to be writing this following Idaho Gives. This is a deep and sincere thank you that comes from the bottom of our hearts. In 24 hours time we raised an impressive $4,517 from 163 donors on May 5, 2016. We came in FIRST place overall for the most donors this year which won us $2,500 in prize money in the medium nonprofit category! And that is not all. Two of our donors were drawn out of a hat and won golden tickets during the giving day which won us an additional $1,000 in prize money!

So with $3,500 in prize money (pays for another window to be replaced!) and $4,517 fundraised the 1912 Center came away earning $8,017 in just one day for the renovation work we are doing here. So very exciting!

Please know that it took all of your donations to make this possible. Special thanks go out to our community partner this year: the Latah County Historical Society who earned free hours of room use for the organization from their members' support. Working together we can do so much more for the community by restoring this beautiful building. We not only create more spaces to do the work that brings community together, we also preserve Moscow's heritage for future generations. YOU are making that work happen.

If you have the opportunity to thank the Idaho Nonprofit Center, please do. Along with their fantasitc sponsors, Idaho Nonprofit Center organizes this day of giving across the state every year and we are very grateful for all the support they provide to make the giving day a fun one.

From all of us at the 1912 Center, thanks again for making Idaho Gives 2016 a huge success.

Windows Going In

Work to be completed in May 2016.

Work has resumed again and the guys from Pioneer Waterproofing can be seen out front working on the building from the swing stage. We are so excited to see the windows going in out front, finally completing the work on the exterior of the 1912 Center in a very visable way to the community. YOU have helped to make this work possible. Your contributions of financial support over the years have made this possible. Your belief in this project have made this work happen. Your use of the 1912 Center spaces have brought the community here to check out what is here and we are making friends with our community and getting more construction done, bit by bit.

Please visit our Facebook page for updates about the construction project out front and to see photos of the work in progress.

Questions about the renovation project and what comes next? Please contact Jenny Kostroff in the 1912 Center/HAI office at (208) 669-2249 or e-mail the 1912 Center at 1912Center@gmail.com and she will happily share with you what is happening at the building. Thank you so much for your support and patience while the exterior work gets completed!

Student Art Show
In the hallway gallery through May.

The students from Paradise Creek Regional High School's art class have created drawings, prints and paintings to share with the community in the current art show, now in the hallway gallery of the 1912 Center. Stop by to check out their work. All pieces are for sale and the funds raised go to support the art program at PCRHS. The show will run through the end of May 2016.

The next gallery show will be ArtWalk 2016 which will open on Friday, June 17, 2016. ArtWalk will feature the paintings of Michael O'Neill and the prints of Kelly O'Neill and Benj Lucas as well as fiber demonstrations by Fiber Festival artists.
