Thank you for your thoughtful consideration to support the Oregon Bee Atlas – where Oregonians are building the first comprehensive account of the native bee fauna of Oregon! There are many different ways to give:
One-Time or Recurring Monthly Gift – Individuals can always make direct contributions in support of the Oregon Bee Atlas. Gifts can be made online (link). When you get to the webpage, type in the word 'pollinator' and select the 'Jerry and Judith Paul Native Pollinator Endowment' (Jerry and Judith Paul are longtime supporters of the Atlas, and established the fund to support the Atlas activities).
Also, checks can be made payable and sent to:
Payable: OSU Foundation
Memo: Jerry and Judith Paul Native Pollinator Endowment
Mail to: OSU Foundation
4238 SW Research Way
Corvallis, OR 97333
Gifts through your Retirement Account – Individuals 70.5 years of age or older may support the Oregon Bee Atlas Fund by transferring up to $100,000 per year directly from a retirement account. For those who are 72 and older, this transfer is likely tax free and may count as your required minimum distribution (RMD).
Other Ways to Give: The OSU Foundation also accepts and can help facilitate gifts of real estate, property, estate planning, and appreciated securities.
