Student Foundation FAQs
The Student Foundation Board is an organization made up of University of Idaho students. It was created to bridge the gap between current students with alumni, faculty, administration, staff, and University of Idaho supporters. We work to educate students on the importance of giving back to the University by organizing philanthropic events.
The Student Foundation (SF) works to create a culture of giving within the University of Idaho student body. Only 35% of the University’s budget comes from state funds. The SF organizes fundraising events to promote philanthropic giving with a spirit of supporting Vandal traditions.
Other events that Student Foundation Board members are involved in are the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, University of Idaho football games, University Gala, Grad Finale, and graduation.
