The Oregon State University Foundation, a private, nonprofit organization, dedicates itself to garnering the resources that enable OSU to achieve excellence in education, research, and outreach. Legally separate from but closely aligned with the university, the foundation leads all fundraising efforts for OSU and manages the philanthropic investments of alumni and friends in the institution.

Private support deepens the university’s impact and extends its reach across our state and around the world by helping to make an OSU education accessible to all qualified students, pushing the frontiers of knowledge, contributing to the state’s prosperity, and addressing many of the most pressing challenges facing our planet and its people.

On December 31, 2014, the foundation concluded The Campaign for OSU, the university’s first comprehensive fundraising campaign, in which more than 106,000 donors made gifts exceeding $1.1 billion to advance university priorities. The powerful momentum generated by their support has fueled Oregon State’s rise as an internationally recognized public research university. Fundraising efforts are now focused on targeted special initiatives that advance the university’s Strategic Plan for creating transformative student learning experiences and building on its greatest strengths and areas of greatest potential impact, such as marine studies.

Annual fundraising totals have averaged more than $100 million for the last five years, placing the foundation among top performing like organizations nationally. Governed by a 42-member volunteer Board of Trustees, the foundation also manages the majority of OSU’s composite endowment, valued at more than $510 million, which supports Oregon State University and the people it serves.
