Since its inception, the IDYCA Foundation has provided tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships and improved the quality of lives for our residential Cadets. The Idaho Youth ChalleNGe Foundation (IYCF) is always looking for support from the community to help us provide academic scholarships, sponsorship to other educational activities, funding for extracurricular programs and other events that provide individuals’ educational enhancement. We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so all donations to the IYCF are 100% tax-deductible.
