Support or Volunteer

The Andrus Center for Public Policy is a nonprofit entity within Boise State’s School of Public Service.  All gifts to the Center are managed by Boise State University Foundation,  a tax-exempt Idaho organization under 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code (#82-6010706), and are eligible for federal and state charitable income tax deductions. The Center is overseen by a Board of Governors with Tracy Andrus serving as Chair in the wake of the passing of her father, Cecil D. Andrus.

The Center’s conferences have focused on, among other issues, the environment, journalism and public policy, national security, equality in the workforce and civil liberties. The Center has been instrumental in bringing to Idaho top national environmental and natural resources leaders, current and former members of Congress, nationally prominent journalists and business leaders.

As a nonprofit organization, we rely on the financial support of individuals, corporations, and foundations in order to sustain our work. If you enjoy what the Andrus Center has to offer, please consider donating a one-time, monthly or sustaining gift. Not only is your gift tax-deductible but it is also eligible for the Idaho Education Tax Credit.

Donors can choose to give in four categories:
