Fund for Idaho helped us start the first charitable community supported agriculture farm in North Idaho. We were able to provide fresh local food to people of all incomes, but also connect people to the land that feeds them. With the program made possible through Fund for Idaho, we’ve raised funds, awareness and food.

The Kootenai Environmental Alliance’s (KEA) mission is to conserve, protect and restore the environment, with a particular emphasis on the Idaho Panhandle and the Coeur d’Alene basin.
KEA is the oldest non-profit conservation organization in Idaho. Their conservation mission is unchanged since the organization’s founding in 1972. We are based in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and work throughout North Idaho.
The organization was founded by former Idaho State Senators Art Manley and Mary Lou Reed, nationally renowned environmental attorney Scott Reed, and representatives from several local and regional sporting organizations.
