Message from Mary Kay McFadden

I’m so proud to be a Vandal and to serve our great university and the state of Idaho. As a student, U of I gave me a head start in life and set the foundation for a dynamic and deeply rewarding career. It’s a privilege to return to my alma mater where I see the difference philanthropy makes every day for our students and the citizens of Idaho. Our donors are extraordinarily generous because they know that every dollar invested in the University of Idaho creates opportunities, fuels discoveries and changes lives for the better.

Thank you for being a champion for the University of Idaho. Go Vandals!
