The Cenarrusa Foundation for Basque Culture promotes the culture and history of the Basques.

The goal of the Cenarrusa Foundation for Basque Culture is to preserve, educate and connect the Basque community and the world through research, projects and educational opportunities by establishing a Basque Studies program at Boise State University.

The success of that effort was a collaboration between educators, businesses, Basque cultural groups in Idaho, the Basque Museum & Cultural Center, and the Autonomous Basque Government. Today, as Boise State Basque Studies (and its various spokes) boasts some of the most successful news, the Cenarrusa Foundation for Basque Culture, continues to promote its programs and offerings, as well as the efforts of the many organizations in and around the Treasure Valley to promote the culture and history of the Basques.
