Thomas and Nicole Maness Memorial Scholarship

Thomas is survived by his wife Nicole, his children Christopher and Kate, and his grandchildren Emma and Luca. Notes and cards for his family may be sent care of Adrienne Wonhof in the College of Forestry Dean’s Office, 109 Richardson Hall, Corvallis, OR 97331.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Thomas and Nicole Maness Memorial Scholarship Fund.
It was Thomas' wish to start  an endowed fund that would support outdoor education opportunities for historically underrepresented youth. In an effort to honor Thomas’ legacy, we are raising funds to establish the Thomas and Nicole Maness Memorial Scholarship Fund through the Oregon State University Foundation.

You can contribute to this effort by writing a check to “OSU Foundation” and mailing it to the address below. Be sure to specify in the memo line of the check that the donation is "In memory of Thomas C. Maness". You can also contribute online at www.osufoundation.org.
