To provide instructions about honoring someone with your gift, print the OSU Giving Form and mail it with your gift.

In Person

If you'd like to deliver your gift personally, OSU Foundation offices are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (excluding holidays).

Recurring Gifts and Electronic Funds Transfer

It takes just a few minutes to launch a recurring gift in which automatic monthly payments are charged to your credit card or transferred from your banking institution. To set up a preauthorized credit card transaction, make an online gift and check the "recurring gifts" box. Or print the OSU Giving Form and provide your credit card information this way. To set up payments direct from your banking institution (ACH transfers), print the Electronic Funds Transfer Form and mail it with a voided check.

Payroll Deduction

Oregon State University employees and OSU Foundation employees can provide a steady stream of support to the fund or funds of their choice through payroll deduction. It's an easy way to make gifts that build up over time, with no need for reminders.

Matching Gifts

Many employers offer gift matching programs that can double or even triple the impact of your gift. Run a quick search through our database to see if your company or organization has a gift matching policy.

Gifts of Stock / Transfer of Securities

Your wise market investment is a wonderful gift to Oregon State! By donating appreciated stock, you can avoid long-term capital gains tax and deduct the full market value on your tax return.

Wire Transfer

To make a gift via wire transfer, please contact the OSU Foundation Office of Gift Accounting to ensure that the correct fund benefits from your gift and that you are appropriately credited.

Gifts of Real Estate and Property

Gifts of donated property, including real estate and in-kind gifts such as rare books or scientific equipment, may be immediate or planned gifts. Explore the ways your cherished possession can make a difference for the OSU programs you care about most.
