Tingey Kent

It is my privilege to express special appreciation to our donors who support the University and its educational mission. Your investment in Idaho State University allows current students and future Bengals to pursue their passion in education at a University devoted to the betterment of Idaho and the world.

Each year, the Stephens Performing Arts Center is filled with honored guests and alumni for the Presidential Donor Recognition Dinner. This annual dinner is our opportunity to publicly acknowledge and thank our donors who have generously supported the University through athletic and academic scholarships, endowments, and many university programs and building enhancements. With their demonstrated commitment and belief in higher education we are a stronger University.
