Faculty & Staff Giving
Makes a Difference at OSU

Find Your Passion 

Your generous support for Oregon State University makes a tremendous impact on students, facilities, faculty, and programs. Whatever your passion, you can find a way to have an impact at Our State University!


Gifts to colleges, schools, and departments help create new programs and ways of teaching. These gifts also support scholarships and hands-on learning experiences.

Opportunities for Support

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. 



Your gift can enhance any area at Oregon State University. What is the program you care about most? Gifts allow OSU Libraries to continually grow its print and electronic collections and acquire new resources such as 3-D printers, providing 21st century technologies for today’s learners. 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. 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. 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.

It Pays to Have a Plan
