Gifts in Kind

Gifts-in-kind – contributions of tangible property – may include items such as rare books for the library or specialized equipment for scientific research. The university has a review process for evaluating the suitability of these gifts.


If the items meet the needs of an OSU program, donors can realize many rewards including:

  • Tax deduction based on the fair-market value of the item
  • Avoidance of capital gains taxes
  • Seeing a treasured possession advance research and education
