Making a Great University Even Better

Annual gifts go to work immediately. They have a powerful 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 at Oregon State right away.

OSU President’s Circle

With your gift of $1,000 to any Oregon State fund, you join the OSU President’s Circle – a dedicated group of loyal donors who provide the annual support the university needs for scholarships, academic programs, research, and more. 

OSU Alumni Association

Membership dues are considered gifts to the university, and as such, enjoy the same potential tax benefits. Dues help support all OSU Alumni Association 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.

Athletics/Our Beaver Nation

Gifts to Our Beaver Nation provide the opportunity for Oregon State’s 500+ student-athletes to receive an outstanding education while competing in the sport they love. These annual gifts support scholarships, academic programs, career development and life skills training, medical support, and more.

OSU Friends of the Arts

These generous supporters make annual gifts of $1,000 to support talented students and excellent arts programs at a great university—investing in scholarships, productions, equipment, and programs. In return OSU Friends of the Arts receive special benefits.

CREATE Oregon State

You can support fellow Beavers and fund your passions by making a gift of any amount through Oregon State's crowdfunding platform, CREATE Oregon State. Your support allows OSU faculty and students to embark on a world of possibilities, improve lives through innovation, inspire social change, and more.

OSU Women’s Giving Circle

Since 2003, alumnae and friends have pooled their charitable gifts of $500 or more in the Women’s Giving Circle, awarding grants to support OSU programs relevant to undergraduate students. They decide which programs receive funding through a voting process.

Faculty/Staff Giving

Employees of OSU and the OSU Foundation show their love of Oregon State through their generous personal gifts. One great option is to give through payroll deduction, and it's easy with our electronic form. More information about faculty-staff giving.

Parents & Families

Gifts to the OSU Parent and Family Fund benefit programs in the Division of Student Affairs that supports the success and well-being of all students, including health services, career services, and new student programs. Learn about the OSU Parent Leadership Council.

OSU Telefund

Through the Telefund, current OSU students reach out to alumni, parents of current students, and friends of the university all across the country.
