Idaho Gives is a state-wide effort to raise money and awareness for Idaho nonprofits. Did you know that BAC is the only non-profit, community supported acupuncture clinic in Idaho? This is BAC's only fundraiser every year and is a critical part of your clinic's sustainability.
Your clinic is created for community, by community. We depend on many different people showing up in many different roles to make acupuncture accessible and affordable for everybody. With over 10,000 patients, 6 employees, and over 20 volunteers, your support during Idaho Gives goes a long way!
This year, contributions will enable BAC to achieve two main goals:
1. To provide over 250 acupuncture treatments per week at our same affordable sliding scale. We are not immune to the struggles of other small businesses in recent years—as the cost of doing business has increased dramatically, it is more difficult for us to stay financially sustainable without increasing our rates.
2. To welcome 1-2 more compassionate and effective acupuncturists and offer competitive wages for our staff. As you know, we currently have a three week waiting list. We believe frequent and regular treatments are crucial to the majority of health outcomes our patients seek. To create more treatment availability, we need to hire acupuncturists and retain our current staff by ensuring we can provide a living wage.
Thank you for taking care of BAC, so we, in turn, can take care of you!
We are still looking for business and individual sponsors to help us kick-off Idaho Gives. If you or your business feel called to support the only non-profit, community-supported acupuncture clinic in Idaho, please reach out to us!
