The Oregon Humanities Center announces a $20,000 Matching Gift Campaign through December 31, 2020

The Oregon Humanities Center (OHC) is excited to announce a matching gift opportunity thanks to the generosity of Amanda and Alex Haugland. The Hauglands will match up to $20,000 in gifts raised through December 31, 2020.

New and returning donor gifts will be matched two-to-one, meaning each dollar of giving by a new or returning donor will generate two dollars in matching funds. (Returning donors are defined as those who have not donated to the OHC during the previous academic year.) Current donors will be matched dollar for dollar.

The OHC is the primary interdisciplinary umbrella organization for the humanities at the University of Oregon (UO). The humanities are highly relevant and necessary for understanding and solving the challenges facing today’s world. The term “humanities” can be applied to work in nearly any academic discipline that seeks to better understand and enrich the human experience.

The OHC advances the university’s research, teaching, and public engagement mission through:

  • supporting and disseminating cutting-edge faculty and student research,
  • aiding faculty and graduate students to publish their books and articles,
  • developing new courses that are piloted and adopted into the classroom curriculum, and
  • providing educational humanities programming that is free and open to the public.

When you give to the OHC, you are:

  • providing faculty and students with the resources to conduct their research, write articles, books, and dissertations, and to present their findings at academic conferences and to the public;
  • creating opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, and faculty from the UO and other universities and colleges to tap into the OHC’s intellectual community and create new collaborations;
  • building a culture among faculty to bring fresh ideas and research to their classrooms;
  • supporting innovative programming and lectureships; and
  • expanding the university’s positive impact beyond campus and out into the community.

Shape the future of the humanities by making your gift today—and have it matched for even more impact.
