The OSU Monthly Campaign Update tracks progress toward our $1 billion campaign goal, celebrates successes along the way, and, above all, showcases the impact philanthropy makes on OSU students, the state of Oregon, and our world.
By the end of April, total gifts to The Campaign for OSU had reached $809.6 million. Learn more about campaign progress.
When OSU announced the new campaign goal of $1 billion this spring, leaders noted that such an ambitious move was made possible by a very broad base of support; this includes more than 3,000 faculty and staff, current and emeritus, who have contributed over $13 million to the campaign to date.
Certainly these financial gifts are only a small part of what faculty and staff contribute to the OSU community. Every day, their gifts bring the university to life: their gifts of time and attention, passion and inspiration, mentoring, understanding, and caring.
But the financial gifts of OSU staff and faculty are also especially important because they demonstrate to external audiences that those closest to the university believe it is worthy of support.
In this report, learn about the permanent impact some current OSU staff and retired faculty are making through their campaign gifts.
