There's still time!

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.

Have we told you how amazing you are recently?

We asked you to help us reach our goal for Homecoming and you delivered! Wow!

Your generosity has exceeded our expectations (as Yotes tend to do!) and we are so grateful. You helped us reach our goal of fixing the clock tower 15 days early and the repair process is already starting!

However, there is still work to do! You would think the computer that controls the clock tower would actually be inside the clock tower itself, right? Nope! The 1989 computer that controls the clock tower is located in the basement of Sterry Hall, and the wires run underground between the two structures! During the repair process, crews will have to tear up the landscaping between the tower and Sterry Hall to update or replace the wiring.

[To see pictures of the "vintage" computer and the cassettes that ran the bells, see below.]

If we can raise an additional $3,000, we will be able to replace the landscaping around the clock tower and Sterry Hall after the repairs are completed. This additional funding will make a big difference in making our campus beautiful again after construction is finished! If you've already donated to our project, please continue to share it! If not, please consider supporting The College of Idaho — even a little donation helps make big things happen.”

 

 

 

Less than $500 to go!!

September 15, 2017

You guys are the best!

With your help, we've almost reached our goal in half the time!

You continue to blow us away with all of the the support you've shown for our very first crowdfunding project, but we still need your help!

We're less than $500 away from reaching our goal so please share the clock tower project on social media to help us spread the word!  With just a few more gifts we can reach our goal and fix the center piece of campus! What a great way to celebrate Homecoming 2017!

Woahhhh! We’re HALF of the way there!!

September 02, 2017

Today we want to send a special THANK YOU to our donors who have helped us reach over 50% of our $6,000 goal! Your support shows us that our Yote family really cares about preserving and improving this beautiful campus!

We are excited to be so close to fixing the clock tower and allowing the next generation of Yotes to enjoy its beauty. But don't let the momentum stop here! You can help us reach our goal by sharing with your family and friends! If you haven't had a chance to make a gift yet, we STILL NEED YOUR SUPPORT! We are so close to being able to fix the clock tower and we would love to count your gift towards improving our beautiful campus!
