The Idaho Youth Ranch (youthranch.org, 2017) utilizes several sources of funding for its programs and services. In addition to a retail arm of the organization, consisting of Thrift Stores and Distribution Centers, State and Federal Grant monetary awards are received annually. Current government grants include Runaway Homeless Youth (RHY), United Way, Idaho Council for Domestic Violence Victims Assistance (ICDVVA), and sub grants managed through the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare (DHW).

The Albertsons Foundation recently awarded the Idaho Youth Ranch a substantial donation to be used towards the organization’s capital campaign to relocate/rebuild their ranch facility.

There are also contracts maintained through DHW for their child welfare and children’s mental health departments. The balance of fundraising is related to activities such as Wine, Women, & Shoes (winewomenandshoes.com, 2017). These activities, however, are designed to primarily generate awareness rather than secure funds as the monetary return on investment is typically a negative amount.

Government funding, often referred to as public dollars, is a huge source of income for many nonprofits, and in some cases, it’s their only source. Government funding, sometimes referred to as public dollars, includes federal, state, and local funding. Some states have “tobacco” funds, and others have “gambling” funds, but all go through some form of government. Identify a source of government funding that might be available for your organization, or that your organization is already receiving.

The funds collected from taxes are spent in a lot of different ways; pay government employees, schools, libraries, military and to fund a variety of other causes (PRLog,2008). Much of the funds that make up grant money comes directly from the taxes we pay (PRLog,2008). These funds are paid into the government, then are passed on to wherever these dollars are being allocated, whether it be; state, local programs, organization or an individual (PRLog,2008).

I was un able to find a direct tax that provides funds to the organization that I chose. However, as mentioned in the assignment it spoke to “tobacco” funds, and others have “gambling” funds that assist in funding nonprofits. Iowa does have some of these taxes. The major excise taxes collected by the state of Iowa are the fuel tax and the “sin tax”, which is taxes collected on cigarettes and alcoholic. These taxes go to fund transportation projects, environmental projects and health related spending.
