OSURA established an endowment in 1995 to enhance the support of its programs and activities for members. OSURA activities are supported in part by endowment funds and a current-use account at the OSU Foundation. Contributions to our endowments are invested, with earnings helping to support our programs. Donations to a current use account are available for immediate use, so they have a major impact in the short term. OSURA activities that benefit from these development funds include
- Printing and mailing the Newsletter and the Directory
- Fall Conference
- Health and Wellness Seminars
- Holiday Buffet and Summer Picnic
- And other OSURA Events
All donations are tax deductible if you itemize your annual taxes. Contributions should note the fund number:
- OSURA Endowment is 605419
- OSURA Current Use Account is 315499
Donations to either the endowment or the current-use account are greatly appreciated. Gifts can be made by credit card by:
- Calling Customer Service at the OSU Alumni Association (614-292-2281).
Donations can also be made by check payable to the OSU Foundation and sent to:
2200 Olentangy River Road
Columbus, Ohio 43210
Another option that benefits you and the OSURA Endowment is through a charitable gift annuity. In exchange for a gift of cash or appreciated securities, you will receive fixed lifetime payments and potential tax benefits. You can take advantage of a special minimum funding amount of $5,000.
