Why give to the Department of Biology?

The faculty and staff in the Department of Biology are committed to advancing the educational and scholarly mission of the university. However, limited financial resources limit our ability to develop educational opportunities that benefit our students. Fortunately, many of our alumni and friends share our educational and scholarly ideals, and help to support our efforts through financial gifts.

There are a number of ways that you can provide support. A donor may choose to contribute to an existing fund that helps to support students as well as departmental activities. Additionally, we are willing to work with donors who wish to establish new endowed funds that target a specific group or is designated for a specific purpose. We also welcome unrestricted donations that can be directed towards emerging needs.

If you wish to make a donation using your credit-card, complete the on-line form. The form automatically directs your donation to the Department of Biology general fund. If you have problems with the online giving form, contact the UO Foundation webmaster or call (541)302-0287.

If you prefer to make a donation by check, mail your check directly to the UO Foundation using the following address.

University of Oregon Foundation
360 E. 10th Avenue, Suite 202
Eugene OR 97401-3273


Your check should be made payable to the UO Foundation and include “Biology” on the memo line.

The UO Foundation can also handle gifts in the form of financial securities, property, or matching gift programs sponsored by your employer.

Your donation, whether it is large or small, is greatly appreciated!
