If you’re visiting this page, you probably already know that Ooligan Press is a student-staffed publishing house in the graduate program in Book Publishing at Portland State University. What you may not realize, however, is that Ooligan Press is also a not-for-profit. We depend on both the sales of our books and the generosity of donors to help us with the day-to-day costs of running a publishing house. The students in the graduate program have worked tirelessly to build a catalog of quality books in a range of genres, to move our catalog into the digital realm by publishing ebooks, and to hold a yearly publishing conference. They have big goals, not only for their education and careers, but for the future of the graduate program and Ooligan Press.
The financial realities of running a publishing house don’t always align with students’ visions for Ooligan Press. This is where help from donors like you is needed. Your contributions make it possible to turn students’ ideas into realities. Giving to the Ooligan Press General Fund helps cover printing costs, general operations, promoting the press, and educational opportunities for students. If you like our books, our events, or simply our pluck, consider making a tax-deductible gift to the graduate program and Ooligan Press. Get started at the PSU Foundation.
