The OSURA Endowment Fund #605419 produces interest that ensures long-term support of activities that enrich our members’ lives. The endowment also allows advocacy and overview of higher education and pension issues.  Since membership dues cover less than half of OSURA’s day to day operating costs, endowment income is vital.

The OSURA Endowment Fund to Combat Student Food Insecurity, #316596, established in 2019, addresses the surprising issue of students struggling to stretch budgets. An Ohio State study in 2018 indicated that 16 percent of the university’s undergraduates eat unhealthy meals or even go hungry. Once endowed, income will support the Buckeye Food Alliance, a food pantry for students and operated by students.
