Boise State GraduatesSept. 10 is the Third-Annual Bronco Giving Day In Support of Students

Alumni, donors, faculty and staff and friends will join Boise State University on Thursday, Sept. 10 for the third-annual Bronco Giving Day

Bronco Giving Day is a 36-hour online giving campaign where donors are able to give to several key campus priorities such as support for the food pantry for students, meals for the Blue Thunder Marching Band when it travels to support athletic teams or the True Blue Scholarship for Idaho residents.

Throughout the day, live leaderboards on the giving day webpage will show the progress of each initiative. You can watch in real-time the impact of your giving toward the final results of the day.

Your gift on Bronco Giving Day will have a more significant impact thanks to generous Bronco supporters who have provided dollar-for-dollar matches and multiple challenges. These matches and challenges will inspire and add to the momentum of the day.  For example, one donor provided a $1,000 gift and will match all contributions to the College of Health Sciences up to this amount.

If you would like to issue a challenge or provide a match of any shape or size, contact Connor Tudbury, assistant director of development, Annual Giving, at connortudbury@boisestate.edu.

You also can participate in  Bronco Giving Day by becoming a social media ambassadors. Ambassadors have access to a personal dashboard with unique social media tools that make it even easier to reach and share the excitement with your network around the country and the world.  For more information on becoming an ambassador, contact Andrew Gauss, senior director of advancement communications at andrewgauss@boisestate.edu.
