The OSU Fundraising and Engagement Update (previously called the Monthly Development Update) is a quarterly newsletter for university colleagues that celebrates impactful partnerships and provides the latest fundraising and engagement news. Written by the OSU Foundation’s President and CEO Shawn Scoville, the newsletter keeps Beavers updated on the Foundation’s upcoming events, progress, goals and strategies, with a focus on how working together across the university helps us achieve our goals.
