Program 3

1-Day Youth Cancer Survivor and Family River Adventures

A journey on the great Payette River Cabarton Run: The Cabarton is a very popular spot in the late summer as it is a dam-release run. It is an excellent run for novices and experts alike. The Cabarton run has the secluded feeling of wilderness as there is no road along most of it. The first couple miles are very mellow and offer a chance to unwind and gradually warm up. The landscape is fantastic.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
