As an out-of-state student, Dr. Sarah Garver, DVM '18,  benefited greatly from scholarships during her years at Oregon State. “It was huge having scholarships in school,” she said. “I tried working some while I was in school, but you know, obviously you're not working full time, school's a full-time job and commitment. And so scholarships really, really helped me … Even before leaving school, my husband and I knew at some point we wanted to do some sort of scholarship for out-of-state specific students.”

Research at the Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine is dedicated to solving some of the world's most challenging animal and human health issues through an interdisciplinary approach. Our biomedical research focuses on the study of animal diseases from pathogenesis to diagnosis and treatment. Your support helps the lives of our animals and humans. 

Gifts to the Dean's Fund for Disaster Response are used for the treatment and care of animals affected by disasters where our veterinarians play a critical role in helping these animals.  

The Dean's Fund for Excellence in Veterinary Medicine provides support to the area of greatest need according to the dean's highest priorities. 

Beavers must work together to advance diversity, equity and inclusion at Oregon State University and beyond.  As a land grant institution dedicated to teaching, research, and outreach, this commitment drives our mission and is reflected in our work to ensure access to higher education for all Oregonians. By giving to the Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine's diversity, equity and inclusion efforts today, you’ll make a difference for OSU students, faculty and staff now and in the future. 

The Large Animal Medicine Fund provides support to the area of greatest need within the large animal hospital such as operational support, facility upgrades, etc. 

When shelter animals, and animals whose owners cannot pay for life-saving treatment, come to the Lois Acheson Bates Veterinary Teaching Hospital, a portion of the cost of their housing, surgery and care may be paid by the Hope Fund. 

The fund was created in 2006 from the estate of Oregon State alumna Dr. Olive Britt, and many generous donors have continued giving to this fund to save the lives of wonderful pets and pets to be. 

The Vet Med Parents and Partners Dean’s Circle is open to parents or partners of all current students who share a commitment to providing an excellent veterinary education that optimizes the wellness and success of students.

Leaders at the CCVM will look to circle partners to provide insight and unique perspectives into the student experience of our students as well as engagement strategies for the CCVM that lead to increased access to a veterinary education to all, regardless of financial means and background.

Our goal is to facilitate communication between student families and leadership at the CCVM.

To join, members will make a contribution of at least $1,200 annually to the Vet Med Parents and Partners Dean's Circle Fund. The commitment can be made in one payment or in monthly increments. Member contributions will be used to fund additional scholarships for veterinary students. Contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law.

Companion animals give us unbounded love, good humor, and patience. When you lose a pet, you lose a special friend. The Pet Memorial Program allows pet owners to honor their animal friends in a meaningful way while supporting scholarships for veterinary students.

Planning a gift through your will or trust may allow you to make a larger gift than you can during your lifetime. Charitable remainder trusts and gift annuities are also an option to consider. Planned gifts can be funded with many different types of assets, including securities, real estate, CDs and retirement assets.

Anna Justice, our director of development, works directly with the OSU Foundation’s Office of Gift Planning to design a gift plan that most effectively accomplishes your charitable goals in light of your individual financial and estate planning needs.
