Giving to OHSU Blood-Brain Barrier Program

How you can help the OHSU Blood-Brain Barrier Program

The OHSU Blood-Brain Barrier Program is internationally known for translational research and clinical programs in the brain tumor field. OHSU is a leader in neurosciences today in part because caring people support these programs with charitable gifts. Many supporters give in memory of a loved one who received exceptional care here, or who believed in the value of our cutting edge research. Your gift in honor or memory of a special person is a meaningful investment in the brain health of future generations. Whether you wish to make a gift or pledge today, or prefer to give to OHSU Blood-Brain Barrier Program through your estate or other form of deferred giving, the OHSU Foundation development staff can help you create a gift that achieves your philanthropic and personal goals.
