Online Giving

Making a gift to our students

Every gift to Oregon State University Ecampus will help meet the needs and fulfill the dreams of OSU's distance students, who are part of the growing population who has discovered the many benefits of online learning.

Ecampus students include full- and part-time students, working and retired professionals, community college students, active-duty and retired military, high school students and individuals who want to further their education with a single college course. Ecampus students and graduates hail from all 50 states and more than 40 countries worldwide.

Gifts benefit two key areas

Your gift can support students or student scholarships. We can help you establish a gift that reflects your wishes, and benefits both you and Oregon State Ecampus. All gifts are administered by the OSU Foundation. Two existing funds in which you may want to invest include the following (links go to the Foundation's "Make a Gift Online" form):

Types of gifts

  • Immediate – Stock/securities, in-kind, matching gift, property
