Help Oregon State Today
Annual gifts go to work immediately. They have a direct effect on OSU—this week, this month, this year. Some donors direct their annual gifts to a particular college, school, or fund; others make unrestricted gifts to support the university’s greatest needs. No matter which you choose, your gift today will make a difference to Oregon State right away.
PRESIDENT’S FUND FOR EXCELLENCE
Your support of the President’s Fund for Excellence allows Oregon State to address its most critical needs in providing amazing opportunities for students, recruiting and retaining outstanding faculty, and providing life-changing programs.
OSU PRESIDENT’S CIRCLE
With your gift of $1,000 to any area of campus, you join the OSU President’s Circle – an unrivaled group of loyal donors who provide the annual support the university needs for scholarships, academic programs, research, and more.
OSU WOMEN’S GIVING CIRCLE
Since 2003, alumnae and friends making a minimum of a $500 gift to the Women’s Giving Circle have pooled their charitable gifts to support OSU programs through a grant process which awards funds to programs committed to supporting student development.
Recent graduates follow a centuries-old tradition of giving back to their alma mater paying forward to current OSU students. With a single gift to OSUnited, new alumni can support the OSU Alumni Association, Our Beaver Nation and the OSU President’s Circle – and become members of these Beaver communities.
OSU Parent & Family Fund
Your gift, along with those of other parents, to the OSU Parent and Family fund ensures that students continue to be able to take advantage of the world-class educational, research, and extracurricular opportunities that position OSU among the country’s top institutions of higher learning.
OSU Alumni Association
Membership dues are considered gifts to the university, and as such, enjoy the same potential tax benefits. Dues help support all of the association’s programs, from events and student activities to helping cover costs of the Oregon Stater and career-development services. Gifts to OSUAA scholarship programs help underwrite tuition and fees for current students.
