Marilyn Shuler Gift and Match Challenge to the Cecil D. Andrus Chair at Boise State University

Marilyn Shuler and Governor Cecil Andrus held a shared belief in the importance of education that brought them together on countless projects over the years, working on behalf of Idaho’s children and recognizing them as vital to the state’s future.

Over the years, these two Idaho icons developed an enduring friendship and a shared commitment to responsible leadership. It’s fitting that Marilyn would leave this gift to ensure the issues she and Governor Andrus cared about so deeply would continue to be addressed through the funding of the Cecil D. Andrus Chair at Boise State University.

For every dollar the Andrus Center raises, the Marilyn Shuler estate will match it dollar for dollar.  Your gift will have twice as much impact on students while also honoring the legacies of both Marilyn Shuler and Governor Cecil Andrus.  This match challenge will expire so the time to give is limited!  We have until January 2018 to reach out goal of $75,000 to maximize Marilyn’s gift.

Your gift helps build a new generation of leaders. Please support us today!
