With the end of the year fast approaching, IBO needs your help to support some of our most iconic projects.  Don’t forget to make your gift prior to Dec. 31 to receive tax benefits. Your gift to the Intermountain Bird Observatory may also qualify for an additional education tax credit in Idaho.

There are two easy ways to support the Intermountain Bird Observatory:

Or, you can mail a check payable to:

Intermountain Bird Observatory c/o BSU Foundation, Inc.
1173 W University Drive
Boise, ID 83706

Please specify if you wish for your donation to go towards a specific project, e.g., Hummingbirds, Long-billed Curlews, or the Diane Moore Nature Center, otherwise it will go into the general IBO account.

A Gift in Your Will or Living Trust – the Easiest Way to Make an Impact

Interested in helping the Intermountain Bird Observatory contribute to conservation efforts that directly impact human lives? A simple and versatile way to ensure that we are able to conduct our research focusing on migratory birds, education, discovery of the natural world, and community engagement is with a gift in your will or living trust.

By including a bequest to the Boise State University Foundation, specifically for the IBO, you are ensuring that we can continue our work for years to come. As little as one sentence in your will or living trust is all that is needed to complete your gift.  If you’d like to learn more, please contact Melanie Bannister at, (208) 426-4199.
