September 14, 2017

Thank you to all that donated to NOMAS! We are excited to announce that we will be attending the 45th Annual NOMA Conference in Houston, TX this year. We could not have done this without your generous contribution. Be on the lookout for an update after the conference!

Mission Accomplished!

December 13, 2016

Dear Friends,

WOW! Thank you all so much for this incredible outpouring of support. Because of YOU, we were able to raise $1,260! This will cover the registration for 4 students at the NOMA Conference next year. 

We are enormously grateful for your support and generosity. We promise to be great Ambassadors for the College; to take the skills we learn back home to help shape our design practices and ultimately help us design better communities. 

Our organization looks forward to updating you over the next few months as we begin the competition process, travel to Houston, and network with NOMA Professionals. 

Again, thank you for your support. We could not have reached this milestone without you!

Good Morning Friends,

Only 2 days left to be part of the NOMAS mini-campaign project!  So far, we have raised $1,210 - 60% of our goal! We are just $790 away from achieving our goal, so now is the time to contribute! Please continue sharing our Thousands Strong page with your friends, colleagues, and classmates. 

Don’t forget that all donations are tax deductible and go to a great cause!

All My Thanks,

Erika Omae

51% of the way there!

December 02, 2016


Thank you so much for the incredible outpouring of support! Each of you is making it possible for us to attend the 2017 NOMA Conference and we could not be more excited - or grateful - for your help. 

We are still $990 from meeting our goal and the clock is ticking. Please take a moment to share our campaign with those on your personal email lists and social-media pages. Our networks only extend so far and we need everyone's help to achieve our goal. 

Thank you, again, for this incredible support. Each of you have warmed our hearts. 

With Gratitude, NOMAS - OU 



Giving Tuesday!

November 29, 2016

Dear Friends,

Thank you! We woke up this morning with an enormously happy heart. With 10 days left in our campaign, we have crossed the 50% mark and are well on our way to hitting our goal of $2,000. 

This is an enormous stride for us and we are grateful for your support. Thank you to everyone who has donated and/or shared our campaign page on your own pages!

Do not forget, today is #GivingTuesday - a day set in conjunction with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. The goal is to raise funds for nonprofit causes just like this campaign. 

The NOMAS - OU Chapter wants to design stronger communities and enhance the way we live. Supporting campaigns like ours and the nonprofits in our community is the best way to help us build a better future. Please continue to volunteer your time, share worthy causes, and support movements you believe in!

Thank you, again, and BOOMER SOONER!

10 Days in and 21 days to go!

November 18, 2016

In only 10 days our Thousands Strong family has helped us reach 15% of our goal! Thank you all giving to our cause and helping us spread the word on social media. We are grateful for your incredible support. 

With only 21 days left in our campaign, it is important that we strive to keep our momentum going! Just because we are off to a good start does not mean that we can stop here. This project gives us an opportunity to compete on a national level and network with some of the greatest minority architects in the nation. Every bit helps, so please continue to share this project with your colleagues, classmates, friends and family! 

Thank you for your generous support. BOOMER SOONER!
