The Foundation is especially encouraging year-end gifts to support the President’s Fund for Excellence (which allows for strategic investments in programs with the greatest need, and greatest promise), the University Venture Development Fund (which directly supports research and economic development in our state), and scholarships (which are so important to recruiting and retaining the very best students, regardless of their financial circumstances).

To date more than one in five alumni have made a gift to The Campaign for OSU, passing on the gift of a great Oregon State University education to today’s students and students to come.

The campaign just received its biggest on-line donation yet, $50,000 for the Robert Yeats Foundation, in honor of Yeats, an OSU Professor Emeritus of Geology who has spent more than 35 years researching and teaching earthquake geology and active tectonics.
