Give to the Department of English

The Department of English plays a vital role at the University, and it is a valuable resource for the larger Portland community. Additionally, the Friends of English organization encourages alumni and community members to stay connected to the department and to the reading and study of literature by sponsoring public lectures and readings.

Your tax-deductible donation promotes excellence by supplying the English department with the resources needed to support our students and faculty, as well as to continue the competitiveness of our graduate programs. You can make a gift to the Department of English or to Friends of English online through the Portland State University Foundation.

Your donations help keep our department strong. Thank you for your support!

The Nina Mae Kellogg Awards: Fostering Excellence

The Department of English annually grants awards and scholarships to undergraduate English majors and to graduate English and Writing students who have demonstrated academic excellence. The awards process culminates each spring in the Nina Mae Kellogg Awards Ceremony, where we come together as a department to celebrate our students and to thank our donors and sponsors. The generosity of our donors funds the contest awards and supports our ability to invite internationally prominent authors to speak at the event.

You can make a donation to the Nina Mae Kellogg Awards Fund online through the Portland State University Foundation. All gifts are tax-deductible and truly make a difference, no matter the amount. In addition, many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company offers a matching gifts program your donation could be doubled or even tripled. Thank you for supporting the Nina Mae Kellogg Awards!
