The Boise Chapter has a simple mission: grow the Zag spirit and community in Boise through leadership, faith, and service. We are passionate about Gonzaga and the community it represents and we hope to make that community a part of all of the events the Chapter puts on.

The Boise Chapter engages Zags and friends of the Zags alike in our greater region. We do this in a variety of ways including:

  • Giving back to our community in the form of service in an annual event packing food at the Idaho Community Food Bank.
  • Supporting the future of our Community and Gonzaga students in the form of events that raise money for scholarships in our annual Boise Chapter Bike Ride to Benefit the Boise Chapter Regional Scholarship.
  • Engaging Zags and friends of Zags in local events promoting our faith, networking and continued learning. Of course, our favorite time of year is Basketball season when Zags from all over our region gather to watch and cheer on our team in our local game watches.

Everyone is welcome to participate in the Boise Chapter. Our Chapter leadership is excited to meet more of the Boise Zags and look forward to growing and shaping our chapter with you!
