The Team for Children at Risk provides vital services to an extremely vulnerable population in our state. These children are at a critical age for development and growth physically as well as emotionally. Not only is providing specialized services for medical and psychological needs in these young people the right thing to do, it also increases their likelihood of becoming productive adults. The reality is that state and federal funds received for services provided through the Team for Children at Risk covers only a portion of the actual cost of these services. State and federal funds cover only 36 percent of the costs for services provided by the Team for Children at Risk. The team depends on private funds to supplement state and federal allocations to provide these crucial services.
Scholarships are a top priority at OU-Tulsa, as many of the students who attend this campus are non-traditional students, balancing an education with jobs and families. To support a student’s educational journey and contribute to scholarships on the OU-Tulsa campus, please consider giving to the following scholarship opportunities:
Through a planned or deferred gift, donors can reach across the generations to touch the future of OU and its students. A donor may make his or her gift unrestricted so that it can be used in an area where it is needed most, or may designate the gift to benefit a favorite college, department, or academic or athletic program.
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, as well as those of OU.
To learn more about planned giving, visit the OU Office of Gift and Estate Planning website here.
