About


The Festival of Giving was formed due to the overwhelming need to assist local nonprofits in the Magic Valley. It is a fundraiser for multiple Nonprofits rather than a single charity and helps neglected children, abused animals, injured veterans, those in crisis, and many more. Farmers Bank, Plant Therapy, Fleur de Lis Ranch and Southern Idaho Landscape Center are proud to be the major sponsors of this grass-roots fundraising event.

The 7th annual Festival of Giving kicks off at Fleur-de-lis Ranch with the Gala of Giving, Friday, November 16, and the general exhibition running Saturday, November 17, through Monday, November 19. Together, individual donors and local non-profits decorate trees and wreaths that are auctioned off at the Gala of Giving.

The goal of this event is to give back to the Magic Valley as a whole. With the combined participation of the public and many charities, not one, but many, benefit from the Festival making it a win-win for everyone by touching the lives of many.
