Support Our Mission

The PSU Foundation is a nonprofit corporation responsible for administering private gifts donated to Portland State University. We work to support PSU’s mission to be a leading public urban university.

Your gift to Portland State makes a difference to students every day. When you donate to PSU, you fund scholarships, support excellence in academics and build campus and community.

In addition to supporting the mission of PSU, a planned gift can provide to you substantial tax advantages, especially on gifts of stocks and real estate. The total income, estate, and capital gains tax savings and the probate expense savings can come close to the amount transferred. The benefits include: 

  • Income Tax Deductions
  • Reduced Capital Gains Taxes
  • Reduced Estate Tax
  • Income for Life

Simply by taking advantage of incentives the IRS provides, you and your advisor can craft a gift that fits your needs, as well as the needs of PSU. A planned gift makes it possible for you, your loved ones, and PSU to all benefit.

We want to be sure that we can fulfill your wishes. If you have any questions, please contact:
