In 2002, this fund was created to hold smaller endowments established in memory, or to honor the retirement of particular individuals, enabling us to reach the minimum endowment size more rapidly and benefit from the potential earning power of these gifts. Once a particular fund reaches the endowment level it will be moved into a separate account. Currently the OSU Foundation requires a minimum of $50,000 to be given to set up a new endowment. Awards will periodically be made in the individual's name for the purpose associated with the original gift.

Gifts can be made online to the Botany and Plant Pathology Endowment Fund in Honor and Memory of Alumni and Friends in the name of any of the funds listed below.
