OU Giving Day Text Logo

On Tuesday, April 13, the University of Oklahoma will launch its fourth OU Giving Day, a 24-hour online fundraising campaign that supports students, departments, programs and groundbreaking research on all three OU campuses.

Donations can be made through the secure online platform at from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on April 13. Every OU college and dozens of other academic areas and student organizations will be represented during the campaign, which will benefit a range of scholarship funds and campus community programs.

The purpose of OU Giving Day is to raise funds for university programs. It also serves to inspire and educate students and the greater OU community on the importance of philanthropy in the educational experience. More than half of the OU student experience is funded by donor dollars and other sources outside tuition, fees and state appropriations.

OU Giving Day brings together the entire OU family – students, faculty, staff, retirees, alumni and friends – in pursuit of a common goal: to ensure the university lives on for generations to come.

Current faculty and staff have the option to participate in OU Giving Day via payroll deduction. The first 750 OU faculty and staff to make a gift of $35 or more toward OU Giving Day will receive a free pair of limited-edition OU business socks!

OU Giving Day is organized by the University of Oklahoma Foundation, the independent not-for-profit corporation that encourages and supports charitable giving for the benefit of the University of Oklahoma. The Foundation acts as the principal organization through which charitable gifts are made and administered for the benefit of the University of Oklahoma. The sole reason for its existence is to serve the University of Oklahoma and the generous donors who support the university.
