2019 Scholarship Gala is Approaching
The annual Scholarship Gala is one of the College’s biggest nights of giving. The funds raised at this event assist more than 90 percent of our students, Alumni, friends and supporters of the College come together, as they bid in live and silent auctions, participate in prize raffles and meet with the very students their gifts go to on to support. Thanks to the generous partnership of last year’s Gala sponsors, donors and attendees, the College raised over $350,000 to directly benefit The College of Idaho’s Scholarship Fund – shattering the previous record by 28 percent. The 2019 Scholarship Gala will take place on March 1 at Boise Centre on the Grove. Our 2019 goal is to raise more than $380,000 for our General Scholarship Fund, allowing us to help more students than ever before.
