Give Through Boise State Phonathon

On the campus of Boise State University a room comes alive each evening with over 30 student callers and 6 student supervisors who call alumni, parents, and friends of Boise State University to share exciting university news, update their contact information and offer them an opportunity to support an area of campus they are passionate about.

Our dedicated and enthusiastic Phonathon Callers make thousands of calls each year in the hopes of contacting as many alumni, parents, and friends as possible. When you answer a call from a Phonathon student, it is your opportunity to connect or reconnect with the university and share stories from your time on campus.

Normal Calling Hours
Sunday from 2–5 p.m. and 6–9 p.m. (MST)

An easy way to double or even triple your donation to Boise State is to find out if your company has a matching-gift program. Such programs typically match all or a percentage of employee contributions to charitable organizations, making the employer a partner in employees’ personal philanthropy. Simply obtain a matching-gift form from your employer’s personnel office, fill it out, and provide it to Boise State with your contribution.

Charitable Estate Planning Information

When you extend your support of Boise State University through your long-term estate or financial plans, your special relationship with the college will continue as a part of your legacy for years to come. Philanthropic partners who give to Boise State through a planned gift are recognized as part of The Barnwell Society.

Gifts of Real Estate and Personal Property

Gifts of real estate, including personal residences, second homes, income property, and vacant land, offer a wide variety of tax and other benefits. Whereas most people give their entire interest away, it is also possible to give only a portion of the property (an undivided percentage interest) while retaining the rest for other purposes.

Gifts of personal property, including rare books, works of art, valuable collectibles, and tangible items of demonstrable value may in some cases enable you to make a significant gift to support Boise State with outstanding tax benefits to you. Likewise, gifts of intangible personal property, such as copyrights, patents, and mineral rights, can generate income for the program of your choice on a continuing basis.

Memorials and Tributes

Memorials and tributes are often given in respect or celebration of mentors, friends or loved ones. You may want to consider honoring an outstanding faculty member, your daughter’s graduation, or your father’s success in life by establishing an honorary gift fund or by giving to an existing Boise State University fund in their name. Designate your donation as an honorary or memorial gift on our online giving page or make a note with your donation.

Each academic year, Boise State University invites its employees to give back in support of the program, department, or fund that matters most to them — and hundreds respond.
