Gifts for Programs

Your gift can enhance any area at Oregon State University. What is the program you care about most?

Colleges and departments: You may designate your gift to any of OSU’s colleges, to a specific department or school within them, or to OSU-Cascades. It will be put to use right away to create outstanding learning experiences for students.

OSU Libraries: Gifts allow OSU Libraries to continually expand its print and electronic collections and acquire new resources such as 3-D printers, providing 21st century technologies for today’s learners.

OSU Extension: For more than 100 years, OSU Extension has shared research-based information to enhance the quality of life in Oregon. Your gift can support a research center in your region or programs including Oregon 4-H and Master Gardeners.

Research and Commercialization: By investing in OSU programs like the Linus Pauling Institute and the Marine Mammal Institute, you help globally recognized scientists seek new knowledge to support a healthy planet and help people live longer, healthier lives. The University Venture Development Fund helps OSU discoveries reach the marketplace.

OSU Athletics: Gifts to Our Beaver Nation allow student-athletes in 17 intercollegiate sports to compete with the very best in the Pac-12 Conference and the NCAA, to the pride of the entire Oregon State community.

OSU Alumni Association: When you graduate from OSU, you become one of more than 160,000 Oregon Staters worldwide – and by supporting the OSU Alumni Association you help to keep our network strong.

There’s so much more; your gift to OSU can support campus diversity, the arts, study abroad opportunities, the Parent and Family Association, and more.
