We're Better Together

Support from alumni, parents, families, and friends helps make education at The College of Idaho extraordinary and accessible. Give to the "Better Together Boone Fund Campaign."

What is the Better Together Campaign?

Better Together is the College's first annual giving campaign, which has a working goal of $650,000. The campaign will be ongoing, and will coincide with the College's fiscal year, which ends June 30th each year. 

Annual giving provides critical resources to bridge the gap between tuition and funding revenue and the full cost of delivering on the College's mission. Gifts to the Boone Fund from alumni, parents, and friends of the College impact every student, faculty member and program on campus. Your support through the Better Together Boone Fund Campaign allows us to continue our legacy of excellence and provide an exceptional and affordable education for all of our students.

Tax benefits - Remember, gifts to The College of Idaho provide a variety of generous tax benefits. These include federal and state income tax deductions. Idaho taxpayers may also qualify for up to $1,000 tax credit. Gifts of some assets may allow you to forego capital gains taxes.

Other Annual Giving opportunities:

Give Day
