Founded in 2001, The Janice Seagraves Family Foundation is a private, nonprofit family foundation located in Twin Falls, Idaho. Twin Falls is situated on the Snake River Canyon in South Central Idaho and serves as a retail hub for a larger agricultural area known as the Magic Valley. The ten counties of Blaine, Butte, Custer, Camas, Cassia, Gooding, Jerome, Lincoln, Minidoka and Twin Falls roughly make up the geographical limitations of the Foundation’s grantmaking. Specifically, the Foundation grants to entities along the Highway 93 Corridor from the northern Nevada border to the northern border of Custer County.
The Janice Seagraves Family Foundation was founded by Janice Seagraves using her winnings from the Powerball Lottery. On Christmas Day 1996, Ms. Seagraves won the Powerball drawing. Hoping to make a lasting impact in the community, Ms. Seagraves used her winnings to set up The Janice Seagraves Family Foundation to help future generations. Since 2001, the Foundation has awarded grants to a variety of organizations around the Magic Valley. Although Ms. Seagraves passed away, her legacy lives on through the Foundation and its governing Board of Directors
Moving forward, the Foundation seeks innovative ways to help the community. Thus, the Foundation accepts grant applications from new entities and those organizations that have previously received money from the Foundation.
