About the Foundation

Pillars of Idaho State University

The Mission of the Idaho State University Foundation is to inspire voluntary private support from alumni, parents, friends, corporations, foundations, and others for the benefit of Idaho State University.

The Foundation raises and manages private resources supporting the mission and priorities of the University, and provides opportunities for students and a degree of institutional excellence unavailable with state funding levels.

The Foundation is dedicated to assisting the University in the building of the endowment to address, through financial support, the long-term academic and other priorities of the University.

The Foundation is responsible for identifying and nurturing relationships with potential donors and other friends of the University; soliciting cash, securities, real and intellectual property, and other private resources for the support of the University; and acknowledging and stewarding such gifts in accordance with donor intent and its fiduciary responsibilities.
