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.

Where to Give

Your philanthropic support of students, faculty and academic programming is essential to Boise State’s advancement as a metropolitan research university of distinction. Donors make the difference.

Idaho Education Tax Credit

Donations to Boise State University qualify for a 50% tax credit — a reduction in the actual tax you owe. If you itemize your taxes, a donation to Boise State allows income tax deductions on both your state and federal returns, plus a 50% Idaho income tax credit.

Boise State University College of Business & Economics’ Kathy Hurley explains why you should take advantage of this tax credit.

Employer Gift Matching

Double Your Impact

Many employers “match” their employees’ charitable contributions, providing an easy and effective way of leveraging your gift to Boise State. Some companies provide the guidelines and forms to fill out online, or you can check with your Human Resources office. Some companies match the contributions of retirees and employees’ spouses.
