Gifts to the EOU Foundation support the things you care about at EOU: excellent education, small classes, high-quality facilities and most importantly, serving our students. Our students’ success is truly impacted by your generosity. Gifts can be made to the general fund. Gifts can also be directed to support specific departments, activities, or scholarships, based on what you’re hoping to achieve.
Contact us with questions or to tailor your giving plan to match your personal goals by email or phone (541-962-3740).
Cash gifts, including checks and credit cards, provide for the immediate needs of our students. You can mail a check to the EOU Foundation, make a gift with your credit or debit card (click here to make an online gift now) or pledge gift installments. All major credit cards are accepted.
All gifts to the EOU Foundation are subject to existing Foundation policies including administrative fees at the time of the gift.
It’s easy to give through automatic payments. If you choose this option, your set monthly gift amount is automatically withdrawn from your bank account. If you work at EOU, you can set up a payroll deduction so that your gift is automatically deducted from your paycheck.
Giving stock is a convenient way to support EOU and often creates tax advantages for you. Based on your wishes, the Foundation can either liquidate or keep the stock to allow it to appreciate. Follow this link for instructions to transfer stock.
Examples of in-kind gifts include food for events, advertising or professional services, property, or equipment including computers, library books, theatre program costumes, and more. Depending on your wishes and the circumstances, the gift may be used by the University or sold by the Foundation for revenue.
Legacy, or planned, gifts such as bequests, trusts, or life insurance policies allow donors to establish a legacy and provide future support for EOU.
