A third-generation Oregonian, Dorothy Scholl Ross ’36 was raised in Hubbard knowing the value of an education, the importance of hard work, and the significance of giving back to those who helped her along the way. Among the individuals and organizations named in her will, Dorothy remembered OSU, and upon her passing in 2007, a gift of $70,000 came to the College of Health and Human Sciences to honor her home economics education.
“Remembering your college in your estate plan is a simple gesture, yet one that can have far-reaching impact for students, faculty, and research at OSU,” says Dan Peterson, assistant vice president for gift planning with the OSU Foundation. “Often the most tax-efficient way to make an estate gift is by naming your college as a beneficiary of a life insurance plan or your retirement or IRA assets.”
