As the only charitable, nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting College of Western Idaho (CWI), the CWI Foundation plays a vital role in helping the College meet its diverse missions. The Foundation works in partnership with the community—raising funds from individuals, companies, foundations, and organizations—to help students access education by awarding scholarships, providing start-up funds for new educational programs, and funding the long-term capital plans to support growth and provide vital educational opportunities for our community. The Foundation manages all gifts it receives in accordance with donors’ wishes. Your investment in the Foundation helps provide access to education and hope for thousands.

“Of all the community committees, boards, and initiatives I am a part of, the College of Western Idaho is one of the most rewarding. The power of a CWI education opens countless doors for our students.  With your support through the College of Western Idaho Foundation, we can help ensure that those doors provide access to better and brighter futures… that CWI can continue to provide hope and opportunity for our students and community.  I'm immensely proud to serve as President of the Foundation Board of Directors and commend our amazing Board for their tireless efforts raising funds for our scholarship programs, helping students get the education they so richly deserve.  I want to thank each and every person, group, and organization that helps us fulfill our mission. Without your continued support, this would not be possible!”
