Coeur d’Alene Casino’s Pay It Forward Initiative Returns

WORLEY, Idaho (April 27, 2021)­—Coeur d’Alene Casino is Paying it Forward in May with the return of their giving initiative. In partnership with Stephens Media Group, Coeur d’Alene Casino will be giving away $31,000 as part of the casino’s charity initiative, Coeur Connections.

“Pay it Forward was such a bright spot for us last year that we knew we had to bring it back,” said Yvette Matt, Director of Marketing at Coeur d’Alene Casino. “Giving is a part of our culture and a major component of our Coeur Values at Coeur d’Alene Casino and Coeur Connections is a way for us to find new ways to give back to a community we are proud to be a part of.”

Coeur d’Alene Casino launched Coeur Connections with the rollout of the first Pay it Forward as a way to highlight the casino’s existing giving program while expanding support of nonprofits, schools, organizations and deserving individuals.

Pay it Forward will begin May 1. There are four chances to grab a piece of the $31,000:
