Founder's Society

The College of Idaho is seeking a new generation of Founders who embrace the legacy of our founders from the past and are willing to make a significant investment in the future. These new founders stand on the shoulders of giants in the College’s history including names like Boone, Strahorn, Blatchley, Simplot, Langroise, Albertson, and so many others. Their dreams for The College of Idaho were matched only by their efforts to achieve them.

The Founders Society includes those who have contributed $100,000 or more during their lifetime. Founders share ideas on the vision for the College and gain a deep understanding of the College’s approach to the liberal arts and the meaning and value of a College of Idaho education.
