Philanthropy has transformed our campus. Over the last decade, giving to OSU has almost tripled, reaching $94 million in FY10.
Building on this tremendous momentum, university leaders announced a new goal for The Campaign for OSU: $850 million by 2013.
More than 53,000 campaign donors are supporting scholarships for high-achieving students, endowed positions for world-class faculty, and new state-of-the-art facilities, and together, they are helping to build OSU’s future as a leading research institution.
Among the top outcomes of the campaign to date are:
- The OSU Foundation’s “$100 Million for Students” scholarship initiative, which now stands at $106 million and includes over 400 newly created scholarships and fellowship.
- The Linus Pauling Science Center, the largest academic building project in the university’s history, funded by the State of Oregon and contributions from many donors, including the Wayne and Gladys Valley Foundation and Al and Pat Reser.
- The Hallie Ford Center for Healthy Children and Families, a tribute to the vision of one of our state’s leading philanthropists and a testament to her lifelong commitment to education.
- 32 new endowed faculty positions, bringing OSU’s total to 78. Among them: The N.B. and Jacqueline Giustina Professorship in Forest Management, the Bob and Phyllis Mace Watchable Wildlife Chair, and the Burgess and Elizabeth Jamieson Chair in Healthspan Research.
