The Stephen E. and Ferne M. Epler Society

Named for PSU founder Stephen E. Epler and his wife Ferne, this donor recognition society honors individuals who are committed to the future of Portland State University and have named the PSU Foundation in their estate plan. Epler had a vision for our institution and transformed that vision into reality. Similarly, Epler Society members ensure that the scholarships and programs they value continue into the future by providing for them in their estate.


  Have you included the Foundation in your estate plan? If so, please let us know so we can better understand and carry out your intended goals. Or, are you thinking about including the Foundation in your estate plan but want to know more? We have various resources to help you take action. 

We look forward to welcoming you as a member and inviting you to our annual Epler Society reception as well as other PSU events hosted by the President and university leaders.
