How to Give
The University of Oklahoma offers several different ways that a donor can contribute. Development staff can provide information and answer questions about which donation method meets the needs of an individual donor.
All gifts are made through the University of Oklahoma Foundation, which receives, administers, invests, and distributes private gifts to OU.
Now more than ever, OU needs the generous support of alumni and friends to fill the gap left behind by declining state funds. Annual gifts provide vital support to scholarships, library and laboratory resources, facility enrichment, and more. To learn more about immediate needs and opportunities, click here.
Ranging from endowments that provide enduring support to major contributions that make an immediate significant impact, leadership gifts to a specific college or program are an investment in the future success of OU. Contact our staff to learn more about the needs in your area of interest.
Planned gifts are as unique as each individual who makes one and may be tailored in a way that best serves the donor’s needs, objectives and wishes, while helping to strengthen OU’s future. Planned giving options include bequests, charitable remainder trusts, real estate, and life insurance. To learn more, click here.
