University Development

University Development

Also known as the OSU Foundation, OSU Advancement or the 4-H Foundation. 
FAES is committed to improving our world through outreach, research and education.  The college is fortunate to enjoy generous support from many individuals and organizations. University development assists with the asking for donations, receiving and depositing donations. 

Donations should only be put into the following university fund numbers. Donations should never be put into other funds or into an Extension Checking Account. 

  • 3xxxxx - Current Use Gifts
  • 4xxxxx - Pending Endowment Gifts
  • 6xxxxx - Endowment Gifts

Development funds are reported under a different FEIN or Tax Id than the university. That number is 31-1145986

Questions about University Development can be directed to CFAES Development or your Business Office or Fiscal Office representative.
For OSU Extension Orgs, questions can be directed to Angie LeMaster.
