Hallie Ford’s foresight and her passion for supporting children and families led to her gift of $8 million in 2008 to establish the Center for Healthy Children and Families in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences at Oregon State University.  Her gift was conditional on raising an additional $2 million, a goal that, thanks to generous donors, was reached in 2009. 

In the selfless spirit of Hallie Ford, we invite you to become a partner in the Center and support the important research, teaching and outreach to promote healthy children and families in Oregon and beyond.

Gifts of any size are welcome. Whether you choose to give $25, $250, or $25,000 your donation will be used to support faculty and student projects, augment research initiatives, purchase technology to support teaching and outreach, or other uses that you may designate.

If you would like to talk to someone about your gift, please email Heather Brust at the OSU Foundation or call her at 541-737-5137.
