Join the Alumni Leadership Circle


The Oregon State University Alumni Association enriches the lives of alumni and friends by helping them establish meaningful, lifelong relationships with our university and with each other.

You can help provide career services, mentoring opportunities or scholarships for students, and communications that bring Beaver Nation closer together.

While the amounts listed below show the impact of specific gifts, contributions of any size to these funds are deeply appreciated. When you make a gift of $1,000 or more to the OSUAA, you’ll become part of the Alumni Leadership Circle as well as a member of the OSU President’s Circle, Oregon State’s community of leaders in annual giving. Alumni Leadership Circle members receive special communications and invitations to events on and off campus, and are recognized in the Oregon Stater magazine.

$1,000 to the Oregon Stater fund tells the story of a Beaver to be proud of in our alumni magazine. Now in its second century, the Oregon Stater is mailed to all alumni three times per year.

$1,500 to the OSUAA Excellence Fund makes it easy for alumni to get the help they need to thrive professionally. The alumni association’s career services include free resume reviews and webinars.

$2,500 for an Ironman Scholarship will help a student whose extreme financial need places them at risk of leaving the university without a degree. This OSUAA scholarship assists juniors and seniors who have exhausted their financial aid options, helping these students become proud graduates.

$5,000 to the OSUAA Excellence Fund supports the Summer Send-Off program. Held in the homes of Beaver alumni in various cities, send-offs give incoming freshmen a chance to meet other new students from their area and learn about life on campus.

$10,000 to the OSUAA Scholarship Fund covers a full-tuition Presidential Scholarship, the most prestigious university-wide scholarship program for in-state, high-achieving undergraduate students.
