The College of Idaho
Jim Everett was officially named Co-President of The College of Idaho in February 2018 after a 41-year career with the YMCA. Everett became the CEO of the Boise YMCA when it consisted of a single branch with 3,000 members in 1987. Over the course of the next 29 years with the support of a great team and community, he helped to transform it into a thriving organization comprised of six new facilities serving more than 57,000 members across the Treasure Valley.
Some of the service and professional accolades Everett has earned throughout his career include St. Luke’s Light of Philanthropy, CEO of Influence, the Idaho Statesman Distinguished Citizen of the Year, Big Brother of the Year, Salvation Army Citizen of the Year, and many others. Everett’s proven skills in fundraising include successful capital campaigns in which the Y raised more than $100 million and the rapid expansion of facilities under his leadership included one of the first Y camps built in the US during the last 50 years. He retired as CEO of the Treasure Valley YMCA in 2016 after more than 29 years at the helm, leaving the organization with net assets of more than $42 million.
