Employee Giving

Oregon Tech faculty and staff are encouraged to make monthly, quarterly, or annual gifts that will support the cause of their choice.

Matching Gifts

Did you know that you may be able to double the impact of your support? Your gift to Oregon Tech may be eligible for a match, potentially doubling or tripling the impact of your contribution. If you work for an employer with matching gift benefits, please ask your human resources department for more information on having your gift matched. Check a list of matching gift employers here.

Instructions to participate will vary per employer.

Gift of Securities

Donating stock is another common way to contribute and will allow you to tax shelter gains on earnings. When stock is donated it is liquidated immediately to preserve value. The proceeds, minus any broker fees and/or commissions, are then allocated according to the donor’s wishes.

To make a stock gift to the Oregon Tech Foundation, please share the following information with your financial advisor:

Firm: D.A. Davidson & Co.

Account Name: Oregon Tech Foundation
Account Number: 60016423

When making a gift of stock, please send a note as to where you would like your contribution to be directed. Learn more about directing your gift here.

Gift of Real Estate

Property is a gift-in-kind that can be donated to benefit Oregon Tech. Did you know that you can donate your house while you are still living in it and take a tax deduction for the value of the property!?! There are many ways to give a gift of real estate or property to benefit Oregon Tech.

Gift-In-Kind

A Gift-In-Kind is a donation of a tangible or intangible asset such as art, books, equipment, automobiles, inventory, personal property, other physical assets, material, or services which represent value to the college. 

A Gift-In-Kind is a great way to support the needs of specific departments to ensure students have the most up-to-date equipment to work with.
