How much of my gift be received by the project?
Campaign teams receive 100% of all dollars raised through their PhilanthroPete project whether or not they reach their goal. The OSU Foundation will work with each team to disperse funds for project related expense.
Will my PhilanthroPete gift be tax-deductible?
Yes. Each gift will receive a receipt for your contribution. If you selected a perk with an associated benefit, the fair-market value will be deducted from your gift when applicable. We generate a gift receipt and send it you for tax purposes usually within the week we receive your gift.
How can I double my donation?
Many companies match gifts to higher education, which can double or triple your gift. To find out if your employer (or your spouse's employer) has a matching gift program, please visit http://osugiving.com/yourgift/employer-matching.
Is it safe to make my gift online?
Yes! We use a digital certificate that authenticates the identity of a website and encrypts information that is sent to the server using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. This prevents your personal or financial information from falling into the wrong hands.
Who can I contact with questions about my gift?
