Make a Gift to Family and Consumer Sciences

The Department of Family and Consumer Sciences would like to thank all those who have been so generous with their contributions.  Your contributions help us to provide quality education, educational opportunities, and financial assistance to those seeking an education through Family and Consumer Sciences.

Areas of need include FCS Scholarships, the Doris Bradley FCS Faculty Development Fund, the Lynette Olson FCS Leadership Fund, and the FCS General Fund for areas of greatest need.  You may also contribute to other FCS areas of your choosing.

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match all or a percentage of any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees, retirees, and/or spouses.  Check with your company about their matching gift policy or use our HEP Employer Matching Gift Program Database to find out if your company participates.  If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest.

Other Types of Gifts

You can give a gift to the Family and Consumer Sciences Department in a variety of forms, including cash, in-kind gifts, planned giving, securities, real estate, trusts, life insurance and bequests.  You might even work for a company that will match your gift to Pittsburg State University, there by increasing your contribution.  Gifts to Pittsburg State are tax-deductible to the full extent of the Internal Revenue Code. To learn more about making a gift, please contact Mary Jo Meier, Director of Development for the College of Arts and Sciences, at 620-235-6127 or by e-mail.

Again, thank you for your generous contributions.
