Questions and Answers

Below you will find answers to many common questions about I Love ISU Campaign.

What is #raisetheROAR? How is it related to the I Love ISU Campaign?

RAISE THE ROAR - is a call to action!

This year, we are asking everyone to RAISE THE ROAR and show your love for Idaho State University during the I Love ISU Campaign. Whether you decide to post on social media, talk about the event, participate in scheduled activities, or make a financial contribution, your involvement helps RAISE THE ROAR and makes Idaho State University a better place.

 

The hashtag, #raisetheROAR, is our way of tracking participation on social media platforms. When you add it to your posts and tweets, it will allow us to see how alumni and friends celebrate being a Bengal. So go ahead, raise it!

What will my gift support?

You can designate a gift to your area of your choice. Browse the "Areas of Impact" on the main page to learn how your gift can benefit students and programs at Idaho State University.

Can I make my gift over the phone or in person?
