If you would like to make an appointment to personally deliver your donation, please contact Katie Mayer at 503-412-6362 or mayerka@ohsu.edu. The OHSU Foundation office is located at: 1121 SW Salmon St. Suite 100, Portland, OR 97205.

Receipting

Checks and cash donations ($5.00 or greater) clearly labeled with the donors information, will be provided with a tax deductible receipt in accordance with tax regulations. Use the Fundraising Tracking Form to keep track of your donors. 

Best practices

  • Keep checks or cash private and secure during your event or fundraiser. If you are using a bucket or box to collect donations, keep an eye on your collection point for safety.
  • Take care when traveling with donations after your event. 
  • Please inform the foundation of any effort to recruit major financial underwriters to ensure there is no duplication of underwriting efforts already underway.
