The College of Idaho has received a $100,000 gift supporting its planned Athletics and Outdoor Education Center, slated to begin construction later this year.
The gift from the Larry and Marianne Williams Foundation will go toward the $3.5 million facility that will provide training and support facilities for the C of I’s student-athletes, including the reinstated football team that will begin competing in fall 2014.
Phase two of the project, a $1.2 million Outdoor Education Center in the facility, also will bolster the College’s programs for all students to enjoy the outdoors and develop an appreciation for nature.
