A Family of Funds
The Idaho State University Annual Giving program is the primary way for alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends to support ISU’s priority: our students. When you donate, you help Idaho State University take advantage of mission-driven, real-time innovations and investments that keep the Idaho State experience transformational – both inside and outside of the classroom.
Roar Scholarship Fund
The Roar Scholarship Fund exists to support the University’s highest priority: our students. This scholarship fund directly aligns with Idaho State’s institutional goals of increasing recruitment and retention by providing future students access to higher education and immediate tuition relief to our existing students. When you support this fund, fifty percent of your donation goes immediately to student scholarships and fifty percent goes to build the Roar Scholarship Endowment to create a pathway to a brighter future for generations of Bengals to come. Please join us in helping the next generation of Bengals find their ROAR!
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.
The Champions Fund provides vital support for Athletics in areas of greatest need that advance ISU's mission of leading the Big Sky Conference academically, athletically, and in the culture and experience available for Bengal student-athletes. Donations to the Champions Fund are used at the discretion of Director of Athletics, Pauline Thiros and help the Bengals compete for championships by providing teams with the essential tools they need such as nutrition, medical care, academic support, and facility enhancements.
Student Enrichment Fund
The Student Enrichment Fund assists all student-based needs whether helping students who are unable to meet essential expenses due to unforeseen hardships or supporting student organizations and clubs in need of supplemental aid. This fund is meant to help reduce the financial burden Idaho State students face as they work towards their goals.
