Letter From the Chairman

Laine Meyer Letter ImageDear Alumni and Friends,

Since my service began on the board of directors, and most recently as chairman a year ago, I continue to be impressed by the generosity and dedication of those who contribute to the University of Idaho through the University of Idaho Foundation, Inc. The impact of your gifts, and of your trust, cannot be overstated. They spur the University forward, supporting the students, faculty, programs and special Presidential initiatives that make our flagship University the best that it can be. 

Achieving the UI Foundation’s goals would not be possible without the fiscal responsibility, accountability, transparency and responsible stewardship that have long guided our organization and our work. And as ever, our people drive that success – a highly-engaged board of directors, an exceptional staff. We’re also proud to partner with the University in many ways, including continued collaboration on the Inspiring Futures: Invest in the University of Idaho capital campaign. 

The University of Idaho Foundation, Inc., is the largest institutionally related foundation in the state of Idaho. Assets totaled $259 million in 2013, with $17.7 million distributed to the University for scholarships and programs. Your support contributes immeasurably to the University’s ability to attract the best and brightest of young students, recruit and retain exemplary faculty, and move forward with innovative programs across its statewide campuses. 

The University of Idaho’s tradition of excellence starts with you, our generous donors. Your thoughtful giving will continue to receive the prudent investment and diligent stewardship it deserves. Your gift serves as a legacy that inspires the future of generations of Vandals to come. Thank you for your continuing support.
