IBO Education and Outreach Fund

Your donation to the K-12 fund directly supports IBO’s K-12 education program, community outreach and events, and other IBO education program initiatives. A $5 donation to this fund supports one student’s field trip experience to our Boise River site. Or, help support long-term stability of our outreach programming by growing the new Barbara L Forderhase IBO Endowed Education Fund.
