The foundation, created in the mid-1980s by the money that came from the liquidation of Parkview Hospital in Idaho Falls, awards grants every spring and fall.
The money comes from the interest on what the foundation has invested, and it goes to tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations in eastern Idaho for capital.
