$57.5 Million in Gifts Continues Giving Momentum at U of I

July 31, 2023

MOSCOW, Idaho — Opportunities for students abound after three years of record-breaking fundraising at the University of Idaho. The university closed fiscal year 2023 with $57.5 million in gifts as we continue our Brave. Bold. Unstoppable. fundraising campaign.

Direct donations, pledges, gifts-in-kind, bequests and other types of gifts went into this total, making the past three years the most successful fundraising years in the history of the institution. The funds will be allocated according to the donors’ wishes: $22.9 million for student scholarships and programs; $27.5 million for faculty, research and programs; and $7.1 million to facilities and other areas to address the specific health, educational, legal and other vital needs of communities throughout Idaho.

All monies raised in FY23 count toward U of I’s goal to raise $500 million by Dec. 31, 2025. To date, the Brave. Bold. Unstoppable. campaign has raised more than $394 million since it began in 2015.

“We are deeply grateful for the donors and alumni whose support is amplifying our impact throughout Idaho and beyond our borders,” said U of I President Scott Green. “Every gift makes a difference in our mission to serve the people, industries and communities across our state.”

FY23 began July 1, 2022 and ended June 30, 2023.
