Help us Complete the Purchase of the Historic KFXD Building!
As you have heard, The History of Idaho Broadcasting Foundation has made a down payment of $25,000.00
and has entered into a two-year contract to purchase the former KFXD studio and offices at
1024 12th Avenue South in Nampa. We have until December of 2019 to raise the remaining $225,000.00
needed to “pay-off” the building. Our goal is to own the building outright, with no mortgage,
and to transform it into the Idaho Broadcasting History Museum and Education Center.
Our extensive research of similar museums has taught us that making any investment into a building
that is not completely ours, is a mistake we are not going to make! For that reason, it is essential that
we raise the needed funds and make this “dream” a reality. We sincerely appreciate the many
individuals who have already donated. “Idaho Gives” is the one-day statewide on-line fundraising day
for Idaho non-profits, and takes place on Thursday May 3, 2018. You are welcome to donate
there at www.idahogives.org We are located under “History of Idaho Broadcasting Foundation.”
However, when you give through Idaho Gives, they take 2.2% of the total plus 30 cents per transaction,
so a $1,000 donation costs us $22.30 in lost funds. In some cases, the donor opts to pay the
credit card and transaction fee(s), but regardless of “who” pays it, there is an additional fee to make a
donation through Idaho Gives. Last year, at least one donor opted to send his donation directly
to us as a check. If you choose to do that, our address is HIBF 6127 N. Hastings Ave Boise, ID 83714.
We’ll mail you a receipt. In either case, we sincerely appreciate any and all donations, for any amount.
We are in the process of getting the building listed as a “historic” landmark, which then allows us to
apply for Historic Preservation Grants, which we are in the process of doing. Please rest assured we are
pursuing all possible fundraising opportunities. In you have ideas, please contact Art at
