Campus Giving Campaign

Your dedication to Boise State and its students is truly an inspiration.  Please consider participating in the Blue, Orange and You campus giving campaign – a campus-wide initiative to increase philanthropic support for Boise State, and most importantly, for its students.

This campaign exemplifies the collective power of those who care most about Boise State and its students—our faculty and staff.  Through your generosity, you can show that this university is more than just your employer—it is about our Boise State community and making the world a better place through the education and support of our students.

There are many areas where your generosity can help the university.  When choosing where to direct your gift, please keep in mind that student scholarships are our greatest need and top philanthropic priority.  Of course, there are many other opportunities and through the Blue, Orange and You initiative, all gifts are counted toward the goal.

Participating in Blue, Orange and You is easy—just ask Jim Browning or Lisa DeRosier!

USE THIS SPECIAL FORM to choose whether to give through payroll deduction or make a one-time gift.  To enroll in or adjust payroll deduction, just print and fill out the form and return the completed form to University Advancement, Annual Giving, MS 1030.

*Gifts and pledges of $1,000 or more (including cumulative and matching gifts) are recognized in Boise State’s premier giving society, the President’s Club.

Deciding which fund to support is simple – here is a list of choices searchable by key word.  Making a donation is a personal decision and it is our goal to help each and every donor find a program or fund that aligns with their values. You can designate your gift to any fund, program, or department, and if you can’t find what you are looking for, we are happy to help.

Every gift makes a difference, no matter the size.  On behalf of the Boise State University community, and especially our students, thank you for your support!

**Boise State faculty and staff members may establish an endowed scholarship at one-half of the minimum commitments and may make their pledge payments through payroll deduction. Usually, an endowed scholarship requires a minimum of $25,000. For faculty and staff, for a limited time, $1 million is available as incentive funds to encourage donors to establish named Presidential and Dean’s level endowed scholarships or any endowed scholarship at the minimum level of $12,500 or higher. These funds provide the anticipated endowment payout of a donor’s gift in the form of immediate scholarship awards.

EMPLOYEE GIVING FAQs

Are all gifts counted in the employee campaign?

All tax deductible gifts are counted, including membership in the Bronco Athletic Association, Boise State Alumni Association and Varsity B. Gifts and pledges received during the July – June fiscal year count towards the current employee campaign.

Are gifts tax deductible and do they qualify for the Idaho State Tax Credit?

Yes, gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Both federal and Idaho law currently allow a deduction for contributions made to the Boise State Foundation. Idaho also allows a tax credit for contributions to educational institutions.  Please consult your tax advisor to determine applicability for your individual situation.

Do payroll deduction gifts continue from year to year? How do I adjust my payroll deduction gift?

Payroll deduction gifts will continue from year to year but a payroll deduction gift can be canceled at any time by notifying the Boise State Foundation via e-mail (foundation@boisestate.edu) or regular mail (Boise State University Foundation, MS-1030).
