Parent & Family Giving

Parents and family members are one of our greatest partners in ensuring student success. Your generosity helps to create a campus community where your student and all Broncos can learn, grow, and thrive.

Parent & Family Fund

Gifts to the Parent & Family Fund support the vibrant Bronco student experience. The fund is used to improve the spaces, programs, and opportunities that all students can access during their time at the university. From enhancing the Student Union to bolstering student clubs to supporting career readiness, your gifts to the Parent & Family Fund ensure that all students can have a transformative experience at Boise State University.

Parent & Family Philanthropy Circle

What is the Parent & Family Philanthropy Circle?

Join a community of fellow Bronco parents and family members to further the mission of Boise State in meaningful ways through philanthropy. Members of the Parent & Family Philanthropy Circle engage deeply with the university and act as valued advocates within the larger community of Boise State parents and family members. 

The Parent & Family Philanthropy Circle is a great way to stay connected and informed about all things Boise State while also making a meaningful impact to the university through philanthropy.

How do I Join?

Parent & Family Philanthropy Circle members participate with an annual commitment of $1,000 ($500 minimum to the Parent & Family Fund). They act as ambassadors by welcoming new Bronco families and promoting greater parent engagement and philanthropy, and they also volunteer at regional and on-campus events. Circle members attend two in-person meetings with university leadership as well as two virtual meetings each year.
