IDB Operating Principles

We ask of our Partners to agree and abide by the following:

  • All diapers provided to PARTNER by the Idaho Diaper Bank (IDB) are to be distributed to families in need without charge
  • IDB and PARTNER will not discriminate on any basis, including without limitation: gender, race, national origin, ethnicity, religious beliefs, age, sexual orientation, disability, medical condition, pregnancy, political affiliation, marital status, veteran status and ancestry.
  • IDB PARTNER does not condition assistance provided to clients directly or loosely on attendance at religious services
  • PARTNER accepts referrals of families in need from National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN) and IDB
  • PARTNER agrees to provide data to the IDB on a monthly basis independent of whether diapers were received the prior month so that accurate totals of diapers distributed annually and total children served can be shared with the NDBN
  • PARTNER agrees to ALWAYS black out visible UPC codes from packages and display posters communicating that diapers cannot be re-sold
  • IDB maintains a regular monthly distribution schedule based on PARTNER needs which are based on the number of clients served.  Orders should be adjusted each time an order is placed based on the PARTNER distribution of diapers during the prior month
  • PARTNER agrees not to stockpile diapers received from the IDB as it is not in the best interest of community wide distribution to babies in need
  • PARTNER agrees to adhere to the NDBN guideline of providing approximately 50 diapers per month to each baby in need to help supplement their total diaper need for the month
  • PARTNER agrees to help spread awareness of Diaper Need in the community and agrees to fundraising activities with a target goal of $1200 each calendar year.  PARTNER may enlist the support of sponsors and donors in lieu of a fundraiser
  • The IDB may reject or cancel the PARTNER partnership at any time due to lack of resources, failure to adhere to principles, or for any other reason.
  • IDB items may not be sold, bartered or exchanged.  Items received from the IDB may not be taken by volunteers, officers, clergy, or employees for personal use.  As outlined in the Internal Revenue Code Section 17(e)(3), all items PARTNER receives from the IDB must be used solely for the care of the ill, needy, or minors, pursuant to the PARTNER’s charitable purpose

Once you meet all of the above requirements, becoming a Partner Agency will be easy. IDB accepts applications at any time, however, all new partners will be approved for a six month probationary period. Upon successful evaluation of the agency’s adherence to the operating principles, the partner will be approved.

Running a diaper program is a big responsibility. It requires a major commitment of time, funds and energy.
