From the Director

Jesse VisserAs you may have heard, the university’s leaders are committed to raising $2 billion in private gifts to create new opportunities for access, excellence, and an enriched student experience.

Already, donors have committed $700 million for this campaign. Their generosity helps ensure affordability for Oregonians, attract and retain the best and brightest students, and provide the means to pursue bold new ideas. Many of those I meet say the same thing—that it feels incredible to be part of such an ambitious effort for Oregon.

Often people tell me how much they wish they were able to do something big, like endow a scholarship or a professorship. In many cases, with assistance from their estate planning advisors, they learn it’s possible to do more than they expected.

As you review your long-term financial goals, please be sure to let us know if you have included the university in your plans. As always, if you need us to keep things confidential, we certainly will.
