ISU United Way Campaign - Goal is $65,000!

Last year ISU donated $52,978 to the United Way to the communities of Southeastern Idaho, Treasure Valley and Idaho Falls & Bonneville County! Because of the amazing generosity of ISU faculty and staff, this money went to support those less fortunate and in need of help. The current economic climate, recent layoffs and ongoing needs for the citizens of Idaho makes this year's campaign very important. ISU is the largest single donor, without company match, in the Southeastern Idaho United Way.  Thanks for your incredible support of the ISU United Way Campaign.

 


ISU United Way Campaign - November 1-30

Idaho State University is the single highest donor in Southeastern Idaho for organizations with no company match programs. Help us beat our goal this year by participating in one or several of our fun challenges and events! We have a variety of ways to donate and win some amazing prizes! Because of corporate sponsorships 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to area programs the United Way sponsors or you can designate eligible 501(c)3 organizations.

***Designate your donation dollars to go to any 501C3 tax-exempt entity on the donation form. If you wish to give to an ISU department, on your donation form under the Tax-Exempt Charitable Organization section, write ISU Foundation - then the specific department you wish to support. For example: ISU Foundation - ISU Meridian Scholarship Fund, ISU Veteran's Sanctuary or ISU Benny's Pantry.
