Meet Our Donors

By extending their support by gift planning through long-term estate or financial plans, these donors have left a legacy to Boise State while maintaining control of their assets during their lifetime, take advantage of a number of tax benefits, and possibly even provide income for themselves or others during their lifetime.

Maximizing Their Contribution

Originally from Banks, Oregon, Gabe Linehan (BBA, ‘13), joined Boise State and the Bronco football team as a redshirt freshman in 2009. The next year he started his first career game against Hawaii and caught six passes for 82 yards and a touchdown.

Now, Linehan carries the hammer as a Financial Representative at Northwestern Mutual Financial Network in Boise. In his position, Linehan is leading the charge and encouraging colleagues, clients and the public to maximize their donations to Boise State University through a gift of life insurance.

Linehan and seven other Boise State alumni and Northwestern Mutual employees each established life insurance policies naming the Boise State University Foundation as owner and beneficiary with a collective face value just over $1 million.
