From Easter egg hunts on the Blue to exclusive art gallery openings, we’re always hatching and shaping new ways to show our donors how much Boise State University appreciates them.
The annual Easter egg hunt is about being on the Blue together. The kids love it as much as the adults do. It’s special to be on the famed Lyle Smith Field in Albertsons Stadium where maybe the young ones will return as students one day. Only time will tell, but one thing is for certain—for all the blue and orange, Boise State alumni and donor Easter photos sure stand out on Facebook.
Perhaps at another level of a theoretical spectrum of event sophistication, we’re opening the doors to a brand new art gallery on campus to President’s Club members at the annual Spring Celebration. This year, we’ll recognize and thank President’s Club donors in the gallery showcasing the work of Benjamin Victor, an artist in residence and professor of practice who’s known for his talent as the youngest artist ever to have a sculpture in the nation’s foremost collection, the National Statuary Hall in the United States Capitol. Now, he is the only living artist to have two works in Statuary Hall. This is an opportunity for loyal donors to see and hear how we’re elevating the arts at Boise State and in the community.
Something special happens when we bring members of Bronco Nation together. We are reminded that we have a common commitment to Boise State, and we get to share that with each other. We get to experience amazing moments together keeping us connected in our professional work, our community involvement and even in our recreation (have you seen the trips planned for the Alumni Travel Program)? Being a Bronco is as fun as it is rewarding.
This year, we’re asking donors to grow their gifts to the premiere giving society level, the President’s Club, so that we can see everyone enjoying what it means to be deeply connected and committed to Boise State University.
Thank you for your continued support.
Laura C. Simic is vice president for advancement at Boise State University.
