Privacy & Security Statement

The Idaho State University Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that exists to secure private philanthropic support for Idaho State University and to invest and manage gifts in accordance with donor wishes.

Privacy Statement

The ISU Foundation is committed to protecting the privacy of its donors. The information you provide when you make a gift is collected for the purpose of correctly processing your gift or pledge.

The Foundation is grateful for the support it receives from alumni and friends. One of the ways our gratitude is expressed is through listing the names of donors in web-based and/or print publications.
