Why should I participate in Day of Giving?

Your participation matters at The College of Idaho. Here’s why…

Every year, thousands of College of Idaho alumni, parents, friends, and students make gifts to the College. These generous contributions range in size, but every gift is transformative, helping our students to discover, connect, and achieve great things around the globe.

Alumni participation is crucial for The College of Idaho to thrive…

Alumni participation is one of the key measures that various surveys such as US News & World Report considers when ranking colleges and universities. Your gift can help The College of Idaho continue to climb in the rankings and is an investment in the value of your own degree.

When added together, small gifts do big things. Think a gift of $25 won’t make a difference for The College of Idaho? It definitely will. In the 2016 academic year, more than 4,900 donors supported LC, and over 3,300 of these donors supported the College’s Annual Fund, which helped the College provide student scholarships, library and technology enhancements, career development programs, resources for athletics and much more.

Your gift has the power to help The College of Idaho raise even more. Many corporations and foundations use alumni participation as a determining factor in deciding whether or not to fund grant requests.  Additionally, strong alumni participation attracts the support of larger donors who like to invest in success.

A gift to the College is seen as an endorsement, and shows that you believe in its continued ability to succeed.
