Our special community of faculty and staff donors

OSU colleagues like you gave nearly $1.3 million in annual gifts to support their philanthropic passions at OSU last fiscal year. We are especially grateful to the 300 faculty and staff donors who were inspired to give to OSU for the first time. Thank you!

Your generosity had a meaningful impact on nearly 440 different areas across the university:

  • Transforming the lives of OSU students
  • Bolstering OSU Extension and other community outreach programs
  • Propelling research that provides innovative solutions to difficult problems
  • Improving the quality of life for people and animals
  • Creating leadership opportunities for our student athletes

All of these accomplishments were made possible because OSU Loyal donors like you joined together to support future generations of OSU students, Oregonians and more.

Thank you, and go BEAVS!

Congratulations to Ilene Kleinsorge!

It Pays to Have a Plan
