The Idaho State University Annual Fund provides institutional momentum for our University. It’s the primary way to provide unrestricted and immediate operational support to Idaho State. This Fund’s immediate-use dollars help our students continue their education without interruption and enhances Idaho State’s ability to provide a robust and engaging learning environment.

Dean's Excellence Funds

Donating to the Dean’s Excellence Funds allows individual colleges access to funds that provide a direct and immediate impact on their students and programs beyond public funding. These donations ensure support for the areas most needed within each college - like student scholarships, the recruitment and retention of key faculty, research, classroom technology and much more. Your donation to the Dean’s Excellence Fund of your choosing provides resources with few restrictions and therefore has a greater impact.
