Making a Gift

Generous gifts from donors to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry have greatly assisted us in achieving our mission through several professional development activities for students, faculty and staff. There are several ways in which an individual or organization may give to the Department, including the following:
 

An Endowment: The principal remains intact, and investment earnings are used to sponsor defined programs such as scholarships or faculty chair positions.
 

Annual Gifts: These may be designated for scholarships and/or professional development of departmental personnel, or may be unrestricted.
 

Memorial Gifts: Honoring a friend, professor or staff with a gift to the department.
All gifts to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry are logged in and deposited with the University of Oklahoma Foundation. You may give to one or more of the following existing accounts, or you may give to a new account that you designate. To donate directly to an existing Fund through a secure on-line form (managed by the OU Foundation), please click on the words "On-line donation option" at the end of the Fund description.
 

Your gifts are very important to us! We very much value and appreciate your continued support of the students, faculty and staff.
