Helping Donors Help Our Programs

CEOAS faculty and staff are invited to a two-hour seminar in Wilkinson 203 Thursday 15, Oct 11:00 – 1:00

This two-hour seminar (with lunch provided) will give an introduction to private-philanthropy fundraising, describe ways to engage and cultivate donors, and explain resources available at CEOAS and the OSU Foundation.  While this seminar might be most useful for program and project leaders, it will be helpful to anyone involved in seeking private funding and also those simply thinking about their personal charitable giving or estate planning. 

Host: Interim Dean Roy Haggerty

Seminar Leaders: OSU Foundation Director of Development Doug Brusa and Director of Gift Planning Jennifer Milburn

2015 State of the Coast conference -- Call for poster abstracts

PLEASE follow the directions for the poster and abstract carefully, and remember that the attendees for this conference are about 3/8 college students (grad and UG), 2/8 agency/scientists, and 3/8 citizens, NGOs, etc., so design accordingly. 

This year there will be a Friday night “student” reception (5:30-8pm) complete with food (pizza) and activities for those students presenting posters. The first activity is a student only poster session. The second activity is a “speed meet and greet” with academic and agency scientists, industry practioners, NGO folks, policy folks, fishermen, etc. 

Saturday’s program will soon be up on the website (http://www.stateofthecoast.com/).
Registration is open on the website. Each student should register individually.
