The Women for OSU Partners provide women with a great opportunity to get involved with Women for OSU and have a direct and fulfilling impact.

Partnering to Impact Grant Program

Partnering to Impact is a donor-funded grant program to support unbudgeted projects across OSU in a way that strengthens the engagement of our Women for OSU Partners. Here’s how it works:

  • Faculty and staff will submit proposals for unbudgeted projects that align with the following four initiatives:
    • Health & Wellness
    • Education
    • Campus Beautification
    • Arts and Culture
  • Grants will be limited to a maximum of $10,000 and must fully fund or complete funding necessary for the project.
  • In addition to other requirements, all applications will include a three-minute video summarizing the impact of the project.
  • Women for OSU Partners will then help choose the grant recipients! Winners will be featured annually at the Spring Symposium and may be featured speakers at regional events.

We humbly thank Becky Steen, longtime Women for OSU member, for making a seed gift to launch Partnering to Impact! The program has experienced incredible growth in the last few years due to the increase in Partners.

It’s easy to join Women for OSU as a Partner to participate in the Partnering to Impact program. You can become a Partner by simply donating a minimum contribution of $1,000 annually to the new Partnering to Impact Fund. For those 35 and younger, the minimum annual contribution is $500.

Women for OSU Director Jayme Ferrell said Partnering to Impact addresses significant campus and community needs that make a difference in the lives of students, faculty and programs.

“Partnering to Impact continues to advance OSU in several important areas,” Ferrell said. “It provides the funding to support current OSU initiatives and new ones that will improve the student experience, our campuses and communities. It’s truly incredible work and we are thankful for our Partners who make it possible.”
