Marine Studies BuildingSupport the Marine Studies Building Fund through the HMSC Community Drive! The Drive, part of the Coastal Community Challenge, solicits donations from HMSC faculty, staff, students, agency employees and any other HMSC Community members who wish to add momentum to this first bold step of the Marine Studies Initiative.

Your investment in HMSC's future through the Marine Studies Building Fund will help us meet the challenge of a $20 million matching pledge. It will also serve as a resounding show of HMSC support to the Oregon legislature as OSU’s request for $25 million in construction bonds is evaluated.

Donations can be made by credit cardpayroll deduction, or by check (mail, or see Chelle in the Business Office). The OSU Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation and donations are tax-deductable. Thank you for your support.

“A $20 million matching pledge gives OSU a tremendous opportunity to build a 100,000 square foot facility for teaching, research and outreach on the HMSC campus.”
