Monetary Donations

Support the Friends of the OSU Craft Center, and make a gift!

All donations to the Craft Center are tax deductible and go directly to our mission of creating an inclusive environment focused on student success and wellness. Membership is now free for OSU students, and as a result, there has been a large increase in usage of the facilities. There is also a great need for low cost and free activities so that all students, regardless of financial means, can enjoy and benefit from arts engagement.

Supplies & Equipment Donations

While monetary donations are always welcome, and allow us more flexibility in our programming, we have identified some areas in which students would love to have increased supplies available for them to drop in and use. Recently we had a generous donation of card making supplies from a community member, and set up a space with those supplies available for students to use at any time. It's gotten heavy use, and we are thrilled to have been able to offer it. In that vein, we would love any of the following:

  • Acrylic paints
  • Canvases or canvas boards
  • Decorative papers for card making
  • Stickers
  • Drawing supplies
  • Watercolors
  • Glass for Stained/Fused Glass
  • Beads for jewelry making
  • 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].
