Gifts that Go to Immediate Needs
The Annual Scholarship Drive raises funds from alumni and friends of USAO and is the single most important campaign during the school year.
This annual drive is a multifaceted solicitation effort that relies heavily on direct mail. It begins in the fall with a follow-up mailing in the spring.
When you invest in USAO's educational mission with an “unrestricted” gift, your donation goes where the need is greatest.
Matching Gift Programs
Matching Gifts Double Your Money!
Wouldn’t it be nice if your employer matched your donation to USAO? Many will! An effective way to double (or even triple) your cash gift is to participate in an employer Matching Gift Program.
Nearly 1,000 corporations (or parent companies) have matching gift programs to institutions of higher learning like USAO.
