It All Starts With an Idea
Every facet of Camp Rainbow Gold exists because of generous donations from the community at large. People all over Idaho think of inventive fundraisers — from bake sales to large galas, birthday gift drives to golf outings. We appreciate every effort to benefit Camp Rainbow Gold.
If you are hosting a fundraiser on behalf of Camp Rainbow Gold, please send us any details at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be happy to post your event to our calendar and can provide logos or other items for your marketing efforts.
We’ve listed a few ideas below, but please use your imagination. All donations and fundraising events make our programs possible and help keep services free for the children and families we serve.
Giving Days or Events
Giving days or events are a great opportunity for your business to gain visibility, access to new customers, and promote goodwill, while also providing important donations and awareness for Camp Rainbow Gold. It’s a win-win! We’d be honored if your business or service would consider hosting a day or week during which a percentage of sales will be donated directly to camp.
Camp Rainbow Gold is happy to provide marketing materials and support for any fundraising events. If it is appropriate, we are also happy to staff an informational table or provide other support to raise awareness.
Gift Drives or Volunteer Days
What do you give the person who has everything? Gift drives are a great way to celebrate birthdays or other occasions and help support Camp Rainbow Gold at the same time. In lieu of birthday gifts, invite your guests to pick something off of our Camp wish list and gift items to our campers instead.
Volunteer days are another fun way to gather with your friends and family and celebrate a special occasion — all while serving your community. We have a lot of opportunities for volunteer activities at Hidden Paradise. If you’re interested in hosting a volunteer day, please contact us at info@camprainbowgold.

Each year, the state of Idaho celebrates its nonprofit organizations and the charitable nature of our community through Idaho Gives. This unique event, beginning at the end of April, features organizations from all over the state telling their stories and introducing their missions.
You can support Camp Rainbow Gold during Idaho Gives by becoming a Peer-to-Peer fundraiser. You’ll create a personal fundraising page through the Idaho Gives platform and have the opportunity to tell your CRG story, introduce Camp to new friends and neighbors, and come together to help Camp Rainbow Gold reach our Idaho Gives fundraising goals.
We’ll prepare social media content and email templates to use or share. We aim to make the experience as easy as possible for you — just bring your passion and heart for Camp Rainbow Gold.
