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

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

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

Your support of the Center for Family Enterprise is welcome. please contact:

The center took shape after Ken and Joan Austin, owners of A-dec, Inc. in Newberg, Oregon, made a generous gift of $1 million, meaning that OSU will assist family businesses long into the future. They are joined by more than one hundred donors who have contributed to our endowment and through annual gifts.

We are pleased to have the strategic and financial partnerships that allow enhanced services to a greater number of family businesses.
