  4    Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:

  7    throughout the country and the world; and
  8        WHEREAS,  the thousands of nonprofit organizations based in Idaho contrib-
  9    ute significantly to a viable economy by providing Idahoans with jobs,  goods,
 10    and services with expenditures of more than $1.7 billion in 2004; and
 11        WHEREAS,  by  every  measure,  Idaho's  nonprofits have grown dramatically
 12    increasing by fourteen percent between 2002 and 2004, faster than Idaho's pop-
 13    ulation is growing; and
 14        WHEREAS, Idaho's nonprofits are often entrepreneurs,  creating  new  solu-
 15    tions  to  problems and filling previously unmet needs in the areas of health,
 16    recreation, education, research, arts, social services and more; and
 17        WHEREAS, the nonprofit sector works as a responsible partner with  private
 18    enterprise  and government to alleviate the most pressing social issues of our
 19    time; and
 20        WHEREAS, Idahoans have one of the highest rates  of  volunteerism  in  the
 21    nation,  thus  providing  opportunities  for  leadership, civic engagement and
 22    building communities; and
 23        WHEREAS, the nonprofit sector acts as a responsible steward of  charitable
 24    dollars to achieve a diverse range of missions and goals; and
 25        WHEREAS,  nonprofit organizations often fulfill their missions by advocat-
 26    ing on behalf of those who cannot advocate for themselves; and
 27        WHEREAS, the nonprofit sector throughout Idaho has a proud history of ser-
 28    vice, innovation and social change; and
 29        WHEREAS, the accomplishments of the nonprofit sector  deserve  acknowledg-
 30    ment, affirmation and celebration.
 31        NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the First Regular Session
 32    of  the  Fifty-ninth  Idaho  Legislature, the House of Representatives and the
 33    Senate concurring therein, that the Idaho State Legislature proclaims  January
 34    18, 2007, as "Idaho Nonprofit Day."
