100+ People Who Care Ada County, a charitable giving organization, awarded $11,100 to Meridian-based Treasure Valley Youth Theater at an inaugural event Sept. 22.

100+ Ada County founder Lynn Bradescu mirrored the program from a successful Marin County pooled-giving program in California.

Treasure Valley Youth Theater was among five nominated nonprofits considered for the funding, and after a vote of the event attendees, the theater company won the grant. Plans for the funding include securing a future home for the theater company.
