Clock Tower Renovation

                                                                                                                   September 26, 2017

Pardon the pun, but there's still time to help the clock tower renovation!

Repairs to the clock tower have been fully funded, but we are still working to raise an additional $3,000 to replace the landscaping around the clock tower and Sterry Hall after the repairs are completed. If you've already donated to our project, please continue to share it on social media and with your friends! If not, please consider supporting The College of Idaho — even a little donation helps make big things happen.

It's about Time!!

The Velma Morrison Centennial Clock Tower has been the center piece of the Quad for nearly three decades and it's witnessed 26 graduations, 27 move-in days, and keeping a steady vigil over the hundreds of students who walk by it daily. Since its dedication in 1990 in honor of the College's centennial anniversary, it has become an icon of C of I life- a meeting place with beautiful, shaded benches around it.

However, the years have not been kind to this landmark. One of the clock-faces is broken, it no longer lights up, and the bells have not rung out over campus in years. It's time for this landmark to be brought back to life!

The cost of the repair has been estimated at $12,000. This is why we need your help. Every gift makes a huge difference!  Thanks to a generous donation from the Harry W. Morrison Foundation, they will match $6,000 in donations to this campaign! That means that every gift up to $6,000 will be matched, doubling your impact! 

Please help us unlock the matching funds and make this clock tick again!

Every gift, no matter the size, will make a huge difference in restoring the clock tower. If you've ever enjoyed it's beauty, you can help make a difference in preserving the clock tower for the next generation of Yotes!

We would like to thank the Harry W. Morrison Foundation for matching every gift up to $6,000.

Giving Back to the Future

Our highest level means the best thank you yet: the first 20 donors who gives $250 or more, and one guest, will get to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the new library before it opens to the public. The tour will be led by our wonderful librarian with special treats provided. The date for the tour will be determined as completion of the library nears but it is estimated to occur in January 2018. You will also get your name on the thank you banner, receive a C of I button, and a personal thank you note from the Yote as a thank you for supporting scholars!
