Guided by its core values of collaboration and innovation, and an established tech-centric culture, the Oregon State University Foundation was quickly able to pivot when the order for remote work came down. With cloud systems immediately available, its employees were up and running from their home offices within days. Such fast action enabled the Foundation to establish the Beavers Care Initiative to assist students affected by COVID-19 and support the university in securing philanthropic funding for research and outreach solutions related to the pandemic.
