CWI gets $7.5M gift from Albertson Foundation

The J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation announced today that it’s giving $7.5 million to the College of Western Idaho, fulfilling an earlier pledge to give a total of $10 million to Idaho’s newest community college. In December of 2008, the foundation awarded the college $2.5 million for startup costs, scholarships and business planning aimed at increasing community college access. Now, the rest of the pledge has been fulfilled. “Our goal from the start has been to increase access to high quality, affordable, comprehensive community college education in Idaho,” said Jamie MacMillan, the foundation’s executive director.

The Albertson Foundation, formed by the founders of the Albertson’s grocery chain, is a private family foundation dedicated to improving education in Idaho.
