The Montana State University Office of Activities and Engagement has many opportunities for interested donors to help with gifts or donations. Alumni of our program, parents of current participants in OAE programs, or other interested parties are invited to help ensure the long-time stability of the OAE. These people so far have been very helpful in making contributions to our existing accounts that allow us to do many things we could not do otherwise. 

We have several existing funds to which graduates and others may contribute at any time, in any amount. To donate to these specific general funds, contact the OAE directly (see below). The OAE BreaksAway Account helps support our BreaksAway program by keeping trip costs low for our students. The OAE Gift Account supports several programs in our office including America Reads*America Counts, and the OAE Match Account helps cover the member match expenses incurred on every AmeriCorps member we take on.   All of these funds are managed in-house by the Office of Activities and Engagement.  

Large donations, or donations by corporations, can be made to the MSU Foundation by specifying that the funds go to the OAE, gifts to the MSU foundation are tax deductible. Larger gifts can also be used to give scholarships in the name of an individual or in memory of an individual. 

Individuals wishing to create specific funds with a designated or limited purpose can contact the OAE and we will work with you and the MSU Foundation to make this possible.

To donate to the MSU Office of Activities and Engagement, use the MSU Foundation online donation form. Be sure to use the “Other” blank to indicate you want your donation to go to the MSU Office of Activities and Engagement.
