Contributions to the Mewbourne School of Petroleum and Geological Engineering are always appreciated. We have been fortunate over the years to have generous alumni who have supported MPGE’s mission and students.

More than 9,500 corporations and foundations across the United States match employee contributions to educational institutions. Is yours one? Use the OU Foundation's searchable database and see if your employer will match your gift to MPGE.
Leave a Legacy was started so that graduating classes could leave behind a lasting gift to MPGE. The first class to particpate was the Class of 2008, who used their funds to purchase artwork depicting the early days of the oil industry in Oklahoma to be placed on display in MPGE's offices.
To make a donation towards the Leave a Legacy Fund, simply notate in the comments section of the donation form "Leave a Legacy."
How to Be an Active Alumni
There are many avenues to continue your involvement with MPGE after graduating. Involvement as an alumnus not only gives back to MPGE, but also adds value to you as you network with fellow and future alumni, encourage the next class of graduates, and continue your journey as a life-long learner.
Donate to MPGE
Small or large, your donations help MPGE provide the best education to its students. Donate by visiting the OU Foundation page and specifying your gift to MPGE or by responding to the Annual Fund Campaign.
Sponsor an MPGE Student Organization
Our student organizations (OU SPE and OU AADE) host a number of events, such as the annual golf tournament and Relay for life, throughout the year to raise funds to participate at conferences, provide educational opportunities, and for philanthropy. We encourage our alumni to support our students in these endeavors as often as they can.
Recruit MPGE Students and Encourage Your Employer to Recruit MPGE Students
What better way to give back to MPGE students than by providing opportunities for them to learn and grow just as you and those who came before you had? Check out the resumes of students looking for internships or full-time employment, and be sure to send your job and internship openings to MPGE’s Alumni and Industry Liaison.
