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:

  • Online
  • 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.  To learn more, contact the Office of Gift Planning by phone at 800-327-7907, by e-mail at, or by visiting
