Someone once said, “The best things in life are free. But you can give them to the birds and bees. I want money.” I’m not entirely sure who though. Confucius? Ghandi? FDR? Oh well. The world my never know.
But what I do know is that the current Boise State Athletic Direct, Jeremiah Dickey, is good at asking for, and getting, money.
Boise State Athletics secured its third $1 million commitment to the Lyle Smith Society, director of athletics Jeramiah Dickey announced Friday.
The gift, from an anonymous donor, is committed to the Broncos’ future basketball facility project.
One of the biggest/hardest jobs of any organization that is “non-profit” is securing the bag from the folks around them. Sometimes it’s a limited donor pool. Sometimes you can only ask for so much before your base is “tapped out” as it were. Apparently the current AD is really good at convincing the pool to keep on giving, at least for a little while longer.
Boise State is going to need all the money they can get in order to be competitive and be ready for next steps.
Congratulations to those involved in this effort and here’s to seeing more of these donations come in.
