Giving is Easy

The OSU Foundation issued all of its Oregon tax credit certificates for contributions to the University Venture Development Fund in 2016. We are hoping to secure new tax credit certificates for 2017 and beyond. Please contact Grady Goodall at 541-737-5918 for more information.

  • Both individuals and corporations can contribute to the University Venture Development Fund.
  • Donors designate a gift of cash or publicly traded stock.
  • Donors submit a signed tax credit application form. (PDF)
  • The OSU Foundation will issue Oregon tax credit certificates to individual or corporate donors equal to 60 percent of the contribution, up to a maximum credit of $600,000. Credits are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • The tax credit may be claimed in a single year or spread out over a three-year period.
