The Bronco Athletic Association (BAA) was established in 1968 to promote and advance Bronco Athletics. It is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The activities of the Athletic Association are conducted in the name of the University with the approval of University management.
A board of forty directors who serve one to three year terms manage the affairs of the Athletic Association. Board meetings are scheduled bi-monthly on the third Tuesday at noon in the Allen Noble Hall of Fame Gallery. A president, vice president, secretary, budget/treasurer, and endowment chair are elected annually by the directors as officers of the Athletic Association. A full-time executive director and a staff of four other professionals conduct the day-to-day affairs from an office located in the Allen Noble Hall of Fame Gallery. Four office staff members are classified as full-time State of Idaho employees. The Executive Director also serves as the Associate Athletic Director for Development.
The Athletic Association raises financial support for Bronco Athletics primarily through five programs. These programs help finance current as well as future scholarships, enhance sports budgets, build facilities and provide for other financial needs. Information on these programs is available on this site under programs and gifting opportunities.
