Giving to CLA
A liberal arts degree can take our students anywhere they want to go and gifts from donors make it all possible. The College of Liberal Arts is fueled by generous gifts from our alumni, community members, friends, and supporters every year. Their gifts to CLA are an investment in world-class education, important research and creative production, and programs that benefit all of our communities. We deeply appreciate the generosity of our donors and the positive impacts that their gifts make for CLA and our students.
You can choose to support the entire school with a gift to the Dean's Fund for Excellence in Liberal Arts or choose the communication area you love most.
“The Patricia Valian Reser Center for the Creative Arts will serve as a unique and dynamic education and performance center and will be a showcase destination for the visual, musical, theater and cultural arts for students, faculty, campus visitors and Oregonians,” said Larry Rodgers, dean of OSU’s College of Liberal Arts.
A lead gift of $25 million for the complex has been provided by Patricia Reser. Additional gifts include a $2 million commitment from the family of the late Lynne Detrick of West Linn to build a new 500-seat concert hall to offer a high-caliber venue for both listeners and performers, Rodgers said. The OSU Foundation continues to seek philanthropic support for the center, and OSU will also seek state bonding from the 2020 Oregon Legislature to help support the project. read more >
