TALKING POINTS

What is Bengal Giving Day (BGD)? BGD is an annual online fundraising campaign where we come together to support Idaho State University and its students by raising as much as possible to help ISU achieve its mission of providing exceptional education, research and outreach.

But BGD is more than just a fundraising event. It’s a time when our campuses and communities come together with an even greater sense of pride and connectedness than we experience daily. By supporting BGD, you’re not only contributing to the success of ISU, but you’re joining a community of passionate and dedicated Bengals who are committed to making a difference in the lives of our students and beyond. It's time for the world to hear our ROAR!

What is the goal?  This year, we're going beyond the dollars... we're counting Bengals! Let's set a new benchmark. Our ambition? Rally as many Bengals as we can, pushing our boundaries in just 1,901 minutes. Kicking off March 12 at 9:00 am. Every Bengal counts, and every gift, no matter its size, is a roaring statement of support.

What if I can only make a small gift? Will that even make an impact?  We understand that not everyone is in a position to make a large gift, but we want to emphasize that every contribution, no matter the size, has a direct impact on our students and the entire Bengal community. Every dollar and donor counts, and we are grateful for your participation in Bengal Giving Day.
