A nonprofit Idaho organization, the Boise State University Foundation was established in 1964 for the benefit of Boise State University.  The Foundation works to inspire, generate, and prudently manage private support for the university.

We work to build relationships and support for student success, including the university’s mission as a metropolitan research university of distinction. We tell our story, develop and nurture donor-centered relationships, and help ensure the stewardship of gifts made to support Boise State.

You can reach us at (208) 426-3276 or Or, stop by! We are in The Alumni and Friends Center at 1173 University Drive, Boise, ID 83706.
