C of I Board of Trustees to match December gifts

This December, when you give to The College of Idaho in support of student scholarships, new buildings, faculty, athletics and more, the C of I Board of Trustees will match your gift, dollar for dollar, up to $250! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to double the impact of your gift!

It is through the generous support of C of I alumni and friends that the College has become one of the top-ranked liberal arts colleges in the nation during the last 125 years. And it is through that support that the College will continue to shape students’ lives for years to come. We thank those who have supported the C of I so far in December. On Giving Tuesday (Dec. 1), more than 60 donors gifted more than $7,500 to the College, which will qualify for the Matching Gift Campaign.

If you want your gift to leave a personal mark on the C of I campus, you can have your name etched in brick and mortar for a donation of $250.

Take advantage of the opportunity to celebrate a graduate or remember a loved one with a custom engraved brick. Each 4 x 8 brick will be placed near the entryway of the new Marty Holly Athletics Center for you and countless others to view now and in the future, with the next installation of bricks scheduled for spring of 2016. Each brick is eligible for the $250 match by the Board of Trustees to the College’s Boone Fund.

Bricks are limited to 15 characters per line (characters include punctuation and spaces). There are three lines of text available. You can fill out the text for your brick on the online purchasing form. You can also purchase a replica brick and display case through the online form if you choose to.
