Bonnie Raper

Board Advisory and Board Secretary

Bonnie is the wife of our founder, Doug Raper.  She supported Doug as he began dreaming of a non-profit to grant wishes to adults with terminal illnesses, and she was excited to see Doug’s dream become a reality in 2010. 

Bonnie was Director of On-Premise Systems for University Financial Services at Boise State University and retired in 2020.  In retirement she started a small jam business in Garden Valley and took a larger role in supporting Doug in making wishes happen.  She is excited to now be a part of the Advisory Board and to assist as the Board Secretary.  And, of course, she will continue working with Doug helping to make the magic happen for our wish recipients.

Bonnie and Doug live in Garden Valley, Idaho, with their two spoiled cats, Mac and Murphy.  Their greatest pleasure is making memories with their kids and grandkids.  In fact, if you see a crazy grandma riding ATV’s with her grandson around Garden Valley, that just may be Bonnie.
