You Make it Possible.

Because of you, our students can continue to seek today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions. Their trajectory is unrivaled, their outlook unlimited. Your support truly makes a difference!

Planning During Times of Uncertainty

Boise State University continues to move forward with our important work. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Congress has enacted several tax law changes. We have created this page as a resource to help you with your tax planning and to offer some ideas for you to consider if you are thinking about making a gift in support of our students during this time of great need.

Alumni Support Nursing Student Loan Debt Relief

Thanks to the generosity of Boise State University College of Business and Economics alumni, Luke and Kasey Dixon, ’08, graduates of the College of Health Science nursing program will get some student debt relief. The Ketchum couple sponsored a campaign where a portion of the sales from their company’s adult beverage, boozie, cocktail in a can, was donated to the Idaho Relief Fund. Of the $45,000 raised for local needs, $33,603 went to help with nursing student loan debt. The fund was established to support nurses and others working the front lines of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Thank you, Luke and Kasey!

In addition to traveling to games to cheer on Bronco athletic teams, they also made giving in support of students and student-athletes part of their Boise State experience.
