OSU Women's Giving Circle


Each year through the OSU Women's Giving Circle, a group of alumni and friends pool their gifts together to fund vital and innovative grants for university programs. Members help decide which programs receive funding by reviewing grant proposals and selecting grant recipients. Last year, the group awarded more than $70,000 to 13 OSU programs.

Joining the Circle provides an opportunity for OSU alumnae, parents and friends to network and learn more about OSU and the impact OSU has through collaborative giving. Become part of the donor community today.

Donors may vote with a minimum donation of $500 or $250 for those under the age of 40. Gifts made by anyone in any amount are graciously accepted to support the Women’s Giving Circle Fund and provide additional money that we can award to applicants. Donors who can give $1,000 or more are also recognized as part of the OSU Beaver Leadership Circle community.
