Ken and Joan Austin

"Our family takes great pride in what the Austin Family Business Program has done." - Joan Austin

The Program, which is self-sustaining, exists because of the support of the family business community. Since its inception in 1985, the Austin Family Business Program has been fortunate to receive funding from individuals, family businesses, foundations, and corporate sponsors.

Gifts provided to The Austin Family Business Program support curriculum and program development, research, and outreach. The Austin Family Business Program would not be successful without the generous contributions of its many donors. Thank you!

The Program is named for Ken and Joan Austin, owners of A-dec, Inc. in Newberg, Oregon. Their generous gift of $1 million means that OSU will assist family businesses long into the future. They are joined by over one hundred donors who have contributed to our endowment and through annual gifts.

We are pleased to have strategic and financial partnerships, allowing enhanced services to a greater number of family businesses.
