Monetary Donations

Support the Friends of the OSU Craft Center, and make a gift! Contact the Director, Susan Bourque, for details!

Students do love crafting, but unfortunately most of them are also broke! Any donations go towards supplies to keep them happily making things. 

Gift List

We set up a wish list of items that we would love for students to have access to.  It's an easy way to donate!

Some of what we regularly hand out and always need:

  • Acrylic paints
  • Canvases or canvas boards
  • Decorative papers for card making
  • Stickers
  • Drawing supplies
  • Watercolors
  • Glass for Stained/Fused Glass
  • Beads for jewelry making
  • Yarn, knitting needles or crochet hooks
  • Clean fabric for sewing
  • Any other specialized craft supplies that students would enjoy!

Each of our studios requires specialized equipment, some of which we have been fortunate to receive from generous community members and alumni. These gifts have made a difference in students' lives and learning outcomes. If you have ideas, supplies, or a specific medium that has meaning for you and that you would love to support our students in their own creative endeavors with, please email either the Director, Susan Bourque at [email protected], or the Assistant Director, Angela Purviance at [email protected].

Supplies & Equipment Donations

We do regular surveys and assessments to make sure we are doing what we need to. When asked about the impact that free materials had on students' ability to participate, I already knew it made an impact, but I didn't know what a BIG impact it is! Jaw droppingly big. If you ever wonder whether your old materials will be appreciated, please know that they will be. We can't afford fancy paints or brushes for them, but students are really grateful just to be able to come in, ask for whatever paint we have, and work on a project.
