credit for individuals is $100; the maximum for corporations is
$500. This will encourage a private and public sector partnership
working together in creating more capacities to mentor youth.
There are three Big Brother-Big Sister regions existing in Idaho.
Upon reviewing prior years' contributions from all regions,
approximately $144,000 of contributions could have been eligible
to receive the credit, with a fiscal impact to the general fund
