We need your help. The IBO is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), research and community outreach unit of Boise State University funded primarily through grants, contracts, and donations from individuals like you! We can’t continue our work without your support, so please consider making a donation today.


General Fund

Your donation to IBO's general fund supports important work such as the Lucky Peak fall migration project, student interns, marketing, newsletters, administrative needs, and more. IBO cannot continue to exist without your generous gifts to this important fund.


Education and Outreach Fund

Your donation to this fund directly supports IBO's K-12 education program, community outreach and events, and other IBO education program initiatives. A $3 donation to this fund supports one student's field trip experience to our Boise River site.


Diane Moore Nature Center: IBO on the River

Your donation to this fund supports construction-related needs for the Diane Moore Nature Center: IBO on the River such as trails and boardwalks, interpretive signage, wildlife viewing blinds, habitat restoration, and more. A major campaign to construct a riverside channel which will be a central theme of our community education program needs your support. Naming opportunities begin at $5,000.

Curlew Research Fund

Your donation to this fund will support our anti-poaching outreach efforts (including youth hunters education, Curlews in the Classroom, and adult outreach programs). Plus will cover data fees for our Long-billed Curlew transmitters to keep them all up and running.


Gorongosa Research Fund

Your donation to this fund will help support our important work in Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique, and the study of critically endangered vultures there. It will also support the training and mentoring of Mozambican students and opportunities for Boise State students to get involved with this globally important restoration effort.


Hummingbird Fund

Your donation to this fund will support our summer hummingbird research in Idaho City and our winter study of Anna's Hummingbirds in the Treasure Valley. Gifts will also support our expansion into the Wood River Valley. Your gift will stay local. Help us share the hummingbird joy with children and adults alike!
