Benton Hall Legacy Society


Leaving a legacy is easy. We all do it - through our children and families, our careers, and the people we interact with every day.

Have you thought about what your OSU legacy will be?

Thousands of people who care deeply about Oregon State University’s work have chosen to create a significant impact long after their lifetimes by including the university in their estate plans. These gifts can be made through wills, trusts, retirement plans, and other life-income arrangements. Some of these gifts cost you nothing during your lifetime—but they all mean a great deal to the university and its students.

We are pleased, through the Benton Hall Legacy Society, to recognize the people who have taken this special step. Look for their names highlighted in the annual Honor Roll of Donors, published in the December issue of the Oregon Stater magazine.
