Chartered by the state of Indiana in 1844, the University was governed by the Holy Cross priests until 1967, when governance was transferred to a two-tiered, mixed board of lay and religious trustees and fellows.
The University of Oregon Foundation is a charitable 501(c)(3) organization responsible for administering private gifts made to further the University of Oregon's mission.

We are committed to the highest standards of service and ethical conduct when it comes to managing donor gifts for the benefit of the university. Donors entrust the Foundation with fiduciary oversight of their charitable gifts and, in turn, we hold in confidence the details of that giving and other related information.
